133 Chesterton Road

History of 133 Chesterton Road

On the left are the Chesterton Urban District Council offices, which became a police station from 1910. The group of children are most likely from Milton Road Schools, which opened in 1908.

Looking east along Chesterton Road. On the right, the building with the stripes is Mitcham’s Department Stores after which the whole intersection became named, Mitcham’s Corner. The Police Sub-Station was next to 133 Chesterton Road. The houses remains but the police station is completely gone.
