Looking north east with Taylors Field and South Pond at bottom of picture and Easebourne at the top.
Looking east over the former railway line, Taylors Field to the right, Ashfield Road to the left. You can see the Catholic Church and White City, Hendersons/Russells Corner and beyond to the causeway leading to the Ruins.
These photos first appeared in the Midhurst Times, and my mother ordered prints as they showed Taylors Field where we lived. There is a slightly different view from this series of photos in the book “Midhurst Town - then and now” by Vic and Barbara Mitchell, published by the Middleton Press in 1983. Charles White himself published in 1972 “19th & early 20th century Midhurst in old photographs”; both are splendid collections for the history of Midhurst, and both are now out of print, though you can still pick up secondhand copies.
