The Orinoo Coffee Bar On Hartfield Road - a Memory of Wimbledon.
As a teenage resident of Morden in the late fifties, my friend Dave and I occasionally frequented a coffee bar in Wimbledon on Hartfield Road near the junction with the Broadway.
We got around a bit as at the time, I had a little 1936 Austin Seven.
The coffee bar was actually called THE ORINOCO, but it managed to lose the "C" in the name on the facia one day, which I don't remember being replaced.
So it became known by us and our friends as the "Orinoo."
