Toad Rock, Rusthall

Rusthall looks really lovely and villagey with the great rocks in the foreground on this postcard. Compare how many cars park around here today with this view.

Town Centre from the Common

The town centre looks lovely from the Common here near Mount Edgcumbe. The great view on this postcard is covered in trees today. Perhaps one day the Commons Conservators will open up this view again.
