Now & Then ~ Amazing Drawings Of The Rose & Crown Over The Years, Thanks To Willis Godley

I was fortunate enough to meet Mr. Willis Godley who lives near what was, the Rose & Crown public house for many years. Mr Godley who is now 96 years old, had been a furniture designer in High Wycombe many years ago & used his amazing drawing skills to document the Rose & Crown during the years 1946 & 1965. Once he realised what we were doing with the Now & Then photos, he offered to show us his drawings & allow me to photograph them to share with you.
