Strand on the Green postcardsStrand on the Green is on the eastern side of Kew Bridge, a few minutes from the eastern end of Brentford, the Thames is to the right and the views are all towards the east.
The first postcard dates from the early 1900s I think. It is a flimsy card, printed in Germany and published by Mayer & Co Chiswick. It has not been used.
The view is to the east of Kew Railway Bridge and it shows a peaceful scene with few people, rowing boats and not much else.
Yvonne Butler sent a scan of the above tinted postcard, postmarked 1910. This view was taken from nearer Kew Road Bridge and includes Kew Railway Bridge.
This later card, sent on 9 August 1957, shows a very similar view to the last, the trees having grown up in the previous 40 or so years. It was published by A V Fry & Co Ltd London.
The card was posted to Mrs T B Davies, 166 Uppingham Road, Leicester, message:
The site has another postcard of Strand on the Green, used as a Christmas card.
