Eric Montague said in his book Mitcham Histories : 12 Church Street and Whitford Lane, page 107, that Mitcham’s post office had occupied 5 locations, as listed below:
1st : at Westhall’s grocery shop in the Broadway
It lists Joseph WESTALL as grocer and cheesemonger as well as the post office receiving house in Lower Mitcham.
2nd : in a small shop near Mitcham Station
This photo from 1895 shows part of the words ‘Post Office’ above the shop.
3rd : a purpose built building in the Broadway
The words ‘Post Office’ can be seen etched in the windows on the building on the right in this photo of around 1910:
According to Eric Montague in his book Mitcham Histories : 4 Lower Mitcham, pages 127-8, this post office was
erected in about 1900 … a three-storeyed building … its rather fussy facade including false timber framing to simulate an Elizabethan structure.”
4th : Post Office and Telephone Exchange building on the corner of London Road and Elmwood Road
Built around 1920, shown here in this 1953 photo:
5th : Langdale Parade
In 1961 the post office moved to Langdale Parade in the Fair Green. The telephone exchange building remains.
Currently, in 2019, the Langdale Parade post office has to a smaller shop nearby at number 5:
