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.

Notes

1. W.H. Jenner was listed in the 1925 street directory at number 5, Buck’s Head Parade.

2. A. & C. Jenner was listed at 5 Buck’s Head Parade in council minutes of 1916 for petroleum licences.

3. “2/3” meant 2 shillings and 3 pence. Decimalised, this is about 11p, and, adjusting for inflation, is equivalent to £7 in 2016.
