Not Brentford New

Photo showing numbers 236 & 237 High Street Brentford in 1963

Two brick built shops

The photo was taken in April 1963, not long before the properties in this area were demolished.

My grandmother, Florence Maria Taylor, her three sisters and two brothers were born at no. 237, between 1876 and 1886, so I was delighted when Carolyn Hammond sent me this image.

Number 236 was a barbers shop at the time the photo was taken, though the Michelin Tyres and Phillips Bicycles adverts suggest it may have been a cycle dealers previously.

Number 237 has an advert for Atlas lamps and gave Greenshield Stamps: perhaps it was a hardware shop before it closed down prior to demolition.

NB this is a low resolution scan. You can see the original photo, and many others of Brentford, by visiting Chiswick Library (please check opening hours), or alternatively a high resolution scan of this photo can be obtained for 5 by contacting Chiswick Library.

See details of these and other properties in this area.
