The Chequers PH in Downham Market



This is where the traffic lights are today in the centre of Downham Market. The Chequers PH is the building on the right at the bottom of Bexwell Rd. Today it's a patch of grass as the pub was demolished in the 1960s so that Lynn Rd could be widened. The Wesleyan Chapel building is still there as is the shop (Sew Inn). I think the boys may be playing marbles! This postcard was posted in 1932.
