Camberley – what was here and what wasn’t? a quiz!

Imagine it is 1850 – the Koh-i-Noor diamond has just been presented to Queen Victoria: the first hippotamus since pre-historic times has come to live in London;  a telegraph cable has been laid, under the sea, from the English coast to France…..

Now, which of the places and institutions on my postcards would you have been able to see in what is now Camberley?  Some answers tomorrow, and some the day after……..
