The “Model of West Green, February 1949” image. Is there a better quality version, the original on display perhaps? I cannot see St. Peters on there and can’t get my bearings.

We are trying to track down pictures of a café that my mother in law used to work in in Crawley. Apparently it was called The Cutty Sark and was part of a bakery run by a Mr Skinner next to the station. We’ve looked all over the internet for any information or photographs. Any help with information would be most appreciated
