Not Brentford New

Half Acre, Brentford early 1900s

Howard Webb has provided scan of this postcard which was published by Wakefields early 1900s; Howard also provided a sharper real photo image in April 2014 which is shown below.
Sepia view of road with assortment of old buildings on the left side, no traffic

This view looks south down Half Acre towards the junction with the High Street. The Stud Cycle Works are advertised on the building on the left. The ornate building further on is the Vestry Hall, built 1900.

The Half Acre formed the boundary between Old Brentford (on the left of the view) and New Brentford (right), in the parishes of Ealing and Hanwell respectively.
