#77 – High Street, Crowthorne

High Street, Crowthorne

High Street, Crowthorne. CNE.95

Though still very recognisable as Crowthorne High Street, the road today is much changed – there’s speed bumps, more traffic, a bench & planter near the lamp post, and the shops have all changed. The delicatessen on the left is now Crowthorne Cycles (and has been for many years), the H.F. Money building has been replaced by a 1970s(?) building housing a charity shop, a pharmacy, and This ‘n’ That, and Sworder’s greengrocers shop became Monica’s clothes shop in (I think) the early-mid 1980s.

The large building with the awning has long been C.T. Bell’s electrical shop, though whether it was when this picture was taken, I don’t know.

  1. Great postcard. That is Mr Money walking towards the camera (right) with his butcher’s van outside. I was a butcher’s boy for Mr and Mrs Money who lived in Pinehill Road. I would cycle around the village on a bike with a large whicker basked on the front. I did it from 1962-65. The shop with the long awning next to Money’s was Longs clothing and haberdashery store. All my clothes, including my Broadmoor and Edgbarrow school uniforms were purchased there. Those were the days!
