Paddling, near Brentford? 1934

Don and Maureen Hutchinson have sent this photo, capturing a summery day around 1934. 'My mother Ena Agnes Harris nee Hutchinson is the lady on the right with the dog, the lady second left wearing hat is her sister Rosina Hutchinson. '

'James Henry and Charlotte Hutchinson were their parents and they were 2 of their 9 children living at 83 Ealing Road, Brentford.'

Group paddling in river
The photo shows a group of six girls, aged around 3 to 12, and five ladies paddling, accompanied by a woolly dog. The water is shallow, the river banks look to be three or four feet deep and contain stones as well as mud. Could this be the Thames or Brent?

The group is likely to be from Brentford. Can you help with any more names or suggest a location?
