Not Brentford

1945/6 photo by H. Felton: numbers 212 - 214

view of two 3 storey shops, followed by an archway (built over) and a glimpse of a third 3 storey shop

Number 212 was a drapers for over 70 years and for most of this period the shop used both numbers 212 & 213. The business in the photo, James Baker, boot & shoe dealers, was established here between 1928 & 1933.

Number 213 was a drapers with no. 212 until around WW1. 1928, 1933 and 1940 trade directories show Hopes domestic stores at this address, but by the time of the photo Timothy Whites had taken over.

There is an archway visible in the photo to the right of no. 213 which had a right of way running under it.

A little of no. 214 is visible to the far right: this was a printers / booksellers until around WW1, then a bakers and confectioners until 1940.
