Not Brentford

View from Brentford Bridge

View of main road with modern buildings to the right, on a sunny day

The view is taken from Brentford Bridge, which crosses the River Brent, and looks westwards towards Isleworth: this area was known as 'Brentford End' and the road way is 'London Road'.

Brentford Bridge was rebuilt in 1900, a contemporary article in the Chiswick Times describes how this was done.

The modern view shows Commerce Road to the right with Bridge House on the corner.

To the left of the photo, behind a traffic light, the block of brickwork marks the site of the railway bridge over London Road. The GWR spur to Brentford Docks opened in 1859 and closed in 1964. The bridge was dismantled in 1966. For more information and photos showing this area in 1958 and 1962 see 'Then & Now Brentford' by Carolyn & Peter Hammond.

Thanks to Dave Stoneleigh who provided this photograph, taken on June 28th 2008 during the Brentford Festival weekend.
