Not Brentford New

1945/6 photo by H. Felton: numbers 323 - 324

view showing a pair of 3 storey brick built properties; the ground floor of the left property is in shade from the shop canopy

Number 323 was occupied by David Lee, a butcher, in 1940. It was also used by butchers at the time of the 1861 - 1891 censuses.

Number 324 was a lodging house for over 40 years until at least 1915. In 1891 22 people lived here, presumably fitting into the 3 rooms on the ground and first floors and 2 rooms on the 2nd floor described in 1915 (T). In 1940 it was occupied by Nelson Larkham. The 'For Sale' sign visible on the first floor is difficult to make out but as far as I can tell it included references to the following properties:

  • *3, *4, *5, *6 High Street (where * could be 27, 32 or 37)
  • 1 & 2 Walnut Tree Road
  • 1 - 6 Alma Cottages, Ealing Road
and underneath is the name 'Cox & Martin'
