Kelly's Directory 1890

David Shailes transcribed and sorted information from Kelly's trade directory for 1890, Old and New Brentford. Thank you David, can imagine the effort required to fill over 600 rows in a spreadsheet.

David prepared two versions, by name and by address: this is by address. Addresses with property or house numbers are in that order, any businesses without a house number are listed after the numbered ones.

This gives a snapshot of where commercial properties - shops, pubs, traders - were concentrated in Brentford in 1890. There are also references to individuals who worked for schools, Boston Park Cricket Club, Brentford Liberal & Radical Club, Grand Junction Water Works and Grand Junction Canal Company, Brentford Convent, Conservative Club, Brentford Fire Brigade, Middlesex Regiment (Duke of Cambridge's Own) 2nd Volunteer Battalion and more.

The 1890 directory was compiled the year before the 1891 census and is a useful supplement to it.
