Not Brentford New

Brentford Dock Swingbridge,1973

Peter Young took this photo in the run-up to Christmas, 22 December 1973. No people around, just a few gulls. In contrast an aerial view from 1929 shows many railway tracks loaded with freight (and no tower blocks of course).

The sign reads 'No craft to proceed beyond this point until amber light indicates which lock is to be used' and the craft is a Thames & General Lightage vessel. The tower block features on another of Peter's photos but has since gone.
