Cycle shop in Buck’s Head Parade, from 1932 to 1968, which previously had been occupied by W.H. Jenner.
A comment on the Facebook Mitcham History group :
I worked at Dynes in 67. Mr Dyne used to have two shops, one in Battersea. After he died in 66 the Battersea shop was sold off… The Chinese moved in, in 68.
Chinese fast food shop Cheun Hong, can be seen in this 1987 photo on Merton Memories.
A 1959 photo on Merton Memories shows the advertising for Dyne’s on the north wall of Buck’s Head Parade. The words ‘Moped Service’ have been preserved as a ‘ghost sign’ with the mural of 2016.
An ad from the East Mitcham Ratepayers Association magazine, dated October 1932, said that “Dyne’s of Clapham Junction” had acquired the business of the late W. H. Jenner.
