Yellow Cat Tea Room

Bob Sargent, a former Wallingford High School teacher emailed us these pictures of the Yellow Cat Tea Room  in Wallingford.

According to Sargent, the Yellow Cat Tea Room was run by Ruth Kirk (nee Alexander) in and about 1920. If anyone wants to add anything to it, I am sure we would all be interested in learning more about it.
