Tea Cup Tuesday - A Present from Guildford

This little treasure was purchased quite recently. It shows the landmarks those familiar with the area would expect. Guildford Castle, St Martha's, St. Catherine's and the famous High Street. The date on this piece is around 1920.

Seeing the picture of St. Catherine's reminded me of the Summers of my childhood. My Grandmother and I would walk along to St. Catherine's. There was a fresh stream of water and we always carried a beaker with us so we could have a drink of the fresh cool water. As you knelt down you had to be careful not to collect little bits of sand in with the water, but, my the water was so fresh and cool it was worth the walk and the risk of sand!
