A number of readers correctly identified the view last week that was from the tower of St Nicolas’ Church in Guildford, but only one person replied with the correct answer to the mystery date.
It is on a plaque (recently re-hung) at 170 High Street, noting that the building was once the home of Guildford’s first cinema, West’s Picture Palace, that opened in 1909. Contemporary furniture and interior design store dwell, occupy the building today.

This week’s mystery vintage picture from my collection (see below) is a cottage that can be seen today, but there is a wooden fence around it now I believe. It’s at a local Guildford beauty spot. Up until the 1960s it was a tea room with tables and chairs in the garden. Any ideas?
The mystery date appears either on a sign, plaque or structure in Guildford town centre. As a clue, it has a link to a mystery date photo featured a few weeks ago. The photos were taken by Richard Bailey.
If you think you know the answers, leave a reply in the box below. All replies will be posted at the same time in about a week’s time, along with a new post with the answers to this week’s photo and mystery date, and the next pair of images.
