Colour Postcard produced for Eydon Post Office.
Four views showing: Lime Avenue with the Elms, and the Post Office, then in the garage of 26 Lime Avenue, The north end of the High Street from 39 to 49, after the telephone cables had been buried, The church from the south east, The Green, showing the small trees that replaced the lost great elms. The Post Office moved to the garage of 26 Lime Avenue in 1988, when Mrs Pam Humphries retired from running the Post Office in the converted outside loo at 3 Preston Road. Ann Hedges ran the new Post Office in her garage, which was once a builder's store and possibly a stables before that. This building, with its blocked doorway on the south side with a monumental stone lintel, may be one of the oldest in the village. The Post Office closed here in 2001-2002.
