Not Brentford New

High Street, near St Lawrence, pre 1920

Howard Webb has provided a scan of this postcard showing an unusual view, looking westwards from near St Lawrence's church: the railings are on the left. Brentford Bridge is in the distance, the News of the World advertisement is on the end of the first building across the bridge, no. 1 London Road.

The Magnet at 152 High Street is visible on the left - the pale, stuccoed building.

To the right is a part of the High Street which is rarely shown in any postcard images. As far as I can make out the nearest building, a corner shop, is no. 178 High Street. The facade of numbers 173 and 174, the most distant buildings on the right, can be identified from the 1945/6 photo.
