Not Brentford New

1945/6 photo by H. Felton: numbers 182 - 183

view showing two 3 storey brick built properties

Number 182 was occupied by a tanner, George Norris in 1851 and later by his sister Sophia Gearey, the widow of a brewer. By 1901 and up to 1928 it was used by a tailor, James Rugg, but there are no references to this property in 1933 or 1940 trade directories and the property may not have been lived in by the time the photo was taken.

Number 183 was used by a cooper then a basket maker in the C19. In 1933 it was a cafe, and in 1940 no details are given for this property. However 5 or 6 years later it was 'The Pianoforte Maintenance Co.'.
