This is my first post, I grew up in Tolworth but now live in the Netherlands
I am looking for information on Alpha Road Surbiton in the early 1900s as part of my family history research
My grandfather Fredrick MASTROCOLA was born on 03 February 1907 at Joy Place, 71 Alpha Road, Surbiton. This was a Fish and Chip shop operated by his parents Antonio and Pasqualina MASTROCOLA. The family also used the name Di ROSA (not sure why to be honest) and this may have been the name of the shop. Frederick's parents were immigrants from Cassino, Italy who had emigrated to England around 1881.
71 Alpha Road has long since been pulled down but I was wondering if anyone has any photographs of the area back in 1900 or any information about the Fish shop or the street in general at that time.
I appreciate any help you can give me
