    I thought that I had covered every part of the history of the Post Office outlets in Penzance, when was this one, in Causewayhead? I take it that it was a sub post office.

    Well I'm only asking because I read it on a sign on this picture.

    On second glance it looks as if the shop in the picture (corner of High Street) is pertaining to be the post office as there is a post box on the side... But I'm puzzled if that is the case as to why call it Causewayhead Post Office when it is in High Street.

    Curiouser and Curiouser, said Alice. I note also that it also includes "Lipton's" above the posting box.

    Yes I saw that and wondered if it was an advert for Lipton's Tea? I can't work out the name of the shop either, and I presume that this was taken about the 1930's but that really is a wild guess.

    I remember a "directory" of later years produced by a Mr Pengelly(?), I have a vaguish idea that it was uploaded by yourself a while back. I cannot find anything at the moment in the flat. I will eventually be able to function, but I do know that I have many originals in the "spare room".
