Not Brentford New

New Brentford view, 1930s/40s?

Fay Twydell has provided this photo with her family home at no. 157 in the right foreground, to the front of the advertising sign for HJ Robinson with arched window and door.
Light traffic including tram, lorry and delivery van
The photo shows a view eastwards along the High Street from near Brentford Bridge. The tree is in St Lawrence's churchyard.

Penningtons occupy buildings to the left and further along the access to Durham Wharf is visible in front of the lower building, angled to the High Street.

I am guessing at a date of 1930s or 40s (my husband reckons post war).

The advertising sign was familiar: see a later photo and some notes about HJ Robinson.

Can you help firm up the date?
