Capel in WWI?

Can anyone help Margaret Baldwin? She writes:

I found my grandfather listed in Kellys street directory for 1913:-

William George Lee. Sub-postmaster. Shopkeeper & post office, Capel Street, Capel-le-Ferne.

I believe that like our local post office, the one in your village has now closed. I realise that it’s a long shot but I was hoping that someone in the village might possibly have a photograph of the building. William George Lee was in the First World War and died in 1915. I was told that my grandmother was forced to move away as they would not allow a woman to run the post office on her own !

Any useful information can be sent to the webmaster who will forward it to Margaret.
