Not Brentford

Postcard showing London Road, Brentford End around 1910

Howard Webb provided this image: "Real photo postcard by Young & Co showing London Road where it meets with Brentford High Street. Unused but date c1910."
London Road view

London Road - two womenThe view includes the Great Western Railway bridge (the signage reads 'Great Western Railway Station') looking towards Brentford Bridge which is in the distant misty area. The two young women are very aware of the photographer and add some life to a quiet scene - no motorised vehicles, just horses and carts.

The 25" to the mile OS Map published in 1915 (freely avalable to view on the National Library of Scotland website) shows there was a pub to the right, the George and Dragon at no. 29 London Road. This survives and is an imposing three-storey building; it may be the building at the right edge of the card. Perhaps someone local can confirm?

Howard previously provided a postcard view from Brentford Bridge showing the eastern end of London Road and other side of the GWR bridge, around 1913.
