Brentford - Market Place to Half Acre circa 1930

Hand-drawn map showing the area between the Market Place and Half Acre as it was ca 1930

Thanks to Mrs Nadine Dunn-Meynell for providing this map, which has been drawn by T.W. Collis. It shows the shops he remembers from around 1930, with an indication of today's road layout (eg Lion Way). A quick check against the 1928 trade directory shows Mr Collis has a good memory!

Marked on the map are the tea stall and chestnut seller in the Market Place, the Boatmen's Institute, White Horse, Half Acre School & Queens Cinema.
