I am enjoying the old pics but it's just frustrating that we can't comment on them, is there really no way we can open this up again, I was looking at the one of the library and remember going in there with my mother, it didn't look like that in1960 but it was there at the top of the village.

It's a free country, adopt whatever PC stance you want. Just don't tell me which stance I should take just because it clashes with your opinion.

Re the picture of the post office and library October 24th
We’ve calculated that the post office moved from this location to the lower side of the vale around 1940

The last picture posted of the George from a different angle is fantastic, I've never seen that one before and it shows the old footbridge over the misbourne, I remember a bridge but I thought it was in a slightly different position, where are you getting these pics???

If you compare the bridge to the first picture posted ( page 1), it has to before 1909. I’m suggesting it part of the set dated pre 1904.

I'm inclined to agree with Sid... Later parapets look like iron railings, the brick one was obviously earlier. The George shows the "Good Stabling" and I can't find any reference to "Mills Bakers & "Cakemakers?" in anything I've got.
The "Good Stabling" was certainly there in 1906 if Page 13 is correct.

If you have a copy of “chalfont St. Peter, a lost village, Audrey Wheelband.
Page 32 plus 35. Reference is made about Mr Mills the baker.

There is a book by Audrey Wheelband of old postcards of Chalfont St Peter.
Picture #32 was taken in 1928. She says the two footbridge are now gone. As can be seen in the picture.

I thought that George photo was slightly different from the others posted.

I have bought all the photos from Ebay over a number of years.

I have Audrey's book and when I run out of Postcards etc was looking at plundering additional photos from that next.  Final project would be to take photos around the village to give the current day view- though Google Streetview does a good job of this already of course.

Marie at Fired Works at the top of the market place has all the postcards in high res if you would like them made into anything for Christmas.

It's a different view but judging by the brick parapet on the bridge it is pre 1906 as you have a 1906 one with railings. The pre 1904 photo on Page 9 shows the brick parapet.

Edit:

"High Street - where the Precinct is now, postmarked 1904. Corner of the George - a follow up from the other day." 

on Page 15 of the photos shows the bridge with the Iron Railings and by the look of it the remains of the brick parapet in the river.
