My grandfather Charles Reeves, purchased this property (which was named 'Glenburn') and ran a grocery business here from 1909 to 1925. After he died in 1925, my grandmother continued to run the shop on her own. She re-married later the same year and she continued to run the shop with my step grandfather who was named Francis Jehu Salmon up until 1933, when they sold the business. My mother was born in this shop along with one of her half sisters.

This is a very old somewhat, blurry image of West Malling High Street. It may have been taken about 1870.
The foreground houses on the left look familiar, but those on the right are seemingly long gone.
