Not Brentford New

Seven men, on an outing, 1930s or 1940s

Men in marquee?Sandra Graves provided this photo showing seven men on an outing, possibly to Brighton. She believes the third man from the left, back row, may be Tom Grant of Brentford. Read more about the Grant family provided by Sandra and by Bob Sheridan.

In January 2017 Tony and Viv wrote 'While checking the mystery photos, on the off-chance they may contain something of relevance to my husband's family history, I got a surprise when I saw my husband's grandfather smiling at me. He is second from the right at the back. His name is Henry Porter, born 1891 in Hammersmith. He's obviously good pals with the man on his left but we've no idea who he is - or any of the others, or where it was taken.'

Viv added 'Henry Porter and his wife Winifred (née Barrett) lived at 309 High St between 1932 and 1937. Henry grew up in Hammersmith and Winifred was born and grew up in Brentford.'.

If you can provide any more names please get in touch. The location appears to be a marquee or tent - possibly a seaside photographer set one up for the purpose?
