Flashback Friday: A misty Limpsfield High Street c1906

It looks rather like the damp, misty and muddy weather we’re having right now and actually Rosewell and Jessamine cottages and Sandridge have changed very little from the outside, but this flashback photo is from 1906.   Does anyone know who the local girls standing outside the cottages might be? 

The photos below looking up the high street to the cottages and Chapel House date from around 1912 – looks like the school had just finished for the day – to 1949 when delivery trucks appear (probably for the Lord Rodney) and 1967 with an original VW Combi Van and a packed carpark!
