This postcard shows Hoath Way in Wigmore in approx 1930. It's a postcard that was postmarked 1939 so the picture must be prior to that. It's titled on the back "Martin's Kiosk Wigmore Kent" and if you look very closely at the photo you can see a building in the centre with a sign on the roof indeed saying "Martin's Kiosk". The houses in the photo still exist but the road is a bit busier. Just to the right of where the man is standing is now the tunnel under the A278 that leads to Hempstead Hill.

 

The same location photographed in 2003. The house on the left is still the same although painted white and the large house still exists . The land with the kiosk appears to now be another house that has appeared between them
