Old School Friends - a Memory of Wimbledon.

I attended the local Pelham County Secondary Boys School which was close by.  A number of my friends who attended came from outlying districts such as Carshalton, Chessington, Tolworth and Walton on Thames, travelling by Southern Railway services to the main line station further up the Broadway.
The photograph must have been taken around 4pm as some of the pedestrians are in school uniform walking towards the station.
I can also recall the dentist Theo Callender whose shingle board appears over the sweet shop on the corner of Russell Road and the Broadway.
