Not Brentford

1891 plaque, Brent Way

Diane Newman spotted this paque on the wall, Brent Way. James Bradbury had a grocery shop at 108 and 109 High Street and an alley ran between the two buildings (called variously Bradbury's Yard, Mr Piper's Yard, presumably after the occupant).

Bradbury's grocery was at no. 108 back in the 1870s and the plaque may follow his taking over no. 109, where the first reference to him found so far is in 1890.

Plaque: 12 inches west of this wall is the property of Mr James Bradbury 1891
