SOME  BRACKNELL ITEMS FROM MY OWN COLLECTION

    

Bill from W.J Coles & son, Station Road 1931

Note the bottom line!! "A safe investment - A Crown Mangle"

Bill originating in Binfield in 1883 from a Brick Company. There where many Brickfields (4) around the Bracknell Area. One of the largest being "Lawrence's". The Lawrence family also owned the large department store in the high street.

Another Bill above. Note the Phone number "2"

 
Souvenir Programme produced for the Queens Coronation. The Coronation Carnival Queen was Miss D.E. Dench. and some of the business's advertising within are still with us. Will Bracknell celebrate like this if Prince Charles comes to the throne?
