Not Brentford

Unloading coffee beans at Brentford Dock, 1973

Peter Young took these photos on the 4th September 1973 ; he writes:

Continuing along the towpath beyond the stack of lime juice drums, on the far left hand side just before the canal narrowed to pass under the Southern Region Railway Bridge, there was a warehouse dedicated to storing coffee beans Ė delightful smell! This was one of the sheds that was overhanging the water, which meant that cranes could be used to unload barges in the dry. I donít have a picture of the outside, but the towpath was covered here. Inside the shed you can see the sacks being rearranged.
