Village Postmen About to Start Off on their Round (presumably this photo was taken after that of Mr Sankey with his bell !). In 1885 the Post Office was at the house known as Grey Cote, and the postmaster was Thomas Dunn. He also carried on a business as a shoemaker. He died in 1906 and the Post Office went across the road to Mrs. Breakwell at Vartry House. Photo Courtesy M. Sampson, Kingsland

A Parade Through the Street of Kingsland - Can Anyone Tell Us Who and Why? - It was probably on the day the Coronation Hall was officially opened. The band would have turned right up the church drive and then gone into The Greens where there were lots of festivities and celebrations taking place. Would this have been 1953/4?

Workers from G. Lewis & Sons Waggon Works, Kingsland, Hereford - The Jubilee Wagon Works for many years employed a number of men - blacksmiths, carpenters and wheelwrights. The works yard was behind the old black-and-white house opposite the School. Here the famous Jubilee wagons were made for which the Proprietor George Lewis was awarded a bronze medal by the Herefordshire Agricultural Society in 1881. Photo Courtesy M. Sampson, Kingsland

Here is a photo which you may find interesting. We think it is of Brian Pettit’s grandfather (second on left) who was called Edward Kenneth Kinnell. We think he lived at Jubilee Cottage at the time the photo was taken (circa 1908) © David Kinnell (whom we thank for kindly sending us this fantastic old photo)
