Today we have "Tea on Tuesday" shot from the efforts of the remarkable Mr. French. The "Canton Tea Rooms" must have seemed very exotic in the early years of the last century as visitors to Bray sought some refreshments.
With thanks to all for today's contributions, we have confirmation of the precise location (Quinsboro Rd, Bray), time of day (approaching 4pm), a refined date range (perhaps 1905 +/- a few years), and additional information on the shops and shopkeepers pictured. As turgidson
points out, and as the modern aerial
attest, it is interesting to note that the gardens of Westbourne Terrace on the left are now all home to single-storey retail frontages, with the older buildings remaining to the rear....
