Not Brentford New

1945/6 photo by H. Felton: numbers 119 - 122

view showing 3 storey brick built properties

Number 119 appears to be 'Thorntons Dining Rooms', the 1940 trade directory does not include no. 119.

Number 120 has a plaque in the bricked up arched window worded 'The Old Vaults 1647 Wine Spirits & Beers'. In 1940 this was run by Fuller, Smith & Turner Ltd, wine & spirit merchants (local brewers).

Numbers 121 and 122 appear to have been built at the same time as 120. In 1940 no. 121 was used by P H Berry, solicitor & commissioner for oaths; no. 122 by Herbert Edward Britton, confectioner: the window shows a 'Cadbury' sticker and there is a 'Black Cat' cigarettes enamel sign.
