Not Brentford

Windmill Road, 1972

Peter Young took this photo of Windmill Road on a summers' day - 10 August 1972. It looks busy for a Thursday. There is a 'ghost sign', long ago painted on the building end: 'Royal Brewery Brown Ale' is all I can make out.

Thanks to Sandra Graves for providing the exact location and an interesting snippet: 'Re Peter Young's picture, it is Windmill Road Bridge , there was a sweet shop and a house where the wall is, the sweet shop was owned by Mr and Mrs Pigmy a lovely couple , the house was owned by Richard O Sullivan well known actor (Man about the house) in the 70s. The road you can see is Layton Road and you can see the M4 in the distance. I hope this is some help, lovely picture.'
