Not Brentford

Catherine Wheel Yard ca 1932

Photo provided by Lynn Hayter. The photo shows her elder sister Ena Stone and friend Tommy Spicer near their homes in Catherine Wheel Yard ca 1932.

The view is looking south towards the wharf, with the High Street behind the photographer.

Lynn adds 'the building on the right is a pub and the sign says 'Chiswick Ales', which was one of the ales of Turners brewery, now Fuller, Smith & Turner, I think.'

The pub, the Brewery Tap, was rebuilt in 1928, according to Gillian Clegg's 'Brentford & Chiswick Pubs', the high entrance with steps to prevent flooding. The pub is still there, it name reminding us of its origins: it was originally next to the Beehive Brewery (which was formerly the Grand Junction Brewery).

Catherine Wheel Road (formerly Catherine Wheel Yard) runs off the High Street between numbers 97 and 98.
