Tea Cosy coffee shop

From the Mitcham News & Mercury, April 17th, 1936

‘Tea Cosy’ coffee shop, at corner of London Road & Morden road, to disappear for reconstruction of railway bridge at Mitcham station.

Mrs M. Cottle, 87, owned the shop for 27 years. “When I came here the place was just a village and business was remarkably good. I used to serve many lorry drivers here but now they can’t pull up here, so I don’t get their custom so much.”

“Some people say I should retire, but I should be thoroughly miserable with nothing to do. I have the best of health, and while I feel as I do at present I want to keep busy.”
