~ R.W. BINDON & CO. ~




A cabinet card taken by R. W. Bindon & Co. Photographic Artists c. 1880's, but I'm not sure where this is (Is it Canterbury?)

I believe it says Post Office above the doorway

There are cases of something just inside the doorway and boots hanging up outside for sale and what looks like bolts of fabric in the window on the right
