Not Brentford New

Postcard showing numbers 290 - 294, early 1900s

three storey property with shops, all with awnings

Janet McNamara provided this image.

This block was 'old' when the 1909/10 Valuation took place and can be picked out in the tithe return map. It lies to the east of Albany Place.

The occupants at the time this photo was taken (a sunny day, judging by the parasol and the awnings) were from left to right:

  • 290: Edwin Gregory, baker; there is an advert in the window for Robes Nursery Biscuits and over the door for Bermaline Bread
  • 291: William Borer, clothier
  • 292: no name visible, but this was a stationers in 1901; 'Servants Registry Office' says the sign under the top floor and above the awning 'Noted house for fishing tackle'
  • 293: a confectioner (Mrs Bunce) in 1901, by 1913 Orton, hairdresser; the 'inn sign' is actually for H. Buck's 'Mizpah Tea'
  • 294: George Frederick Edmett, draper in 1901 and 1913

The single storey property at the end, no. 295 gave access to the doctor's surgery and just visible are a couple of bushes in the garden of no. 296, which was set back from the road.

More details of these properties or a view of the same properties in 1945/6.
