Not Brentford

1945/6 photo by H. Felton: number 329

brick built property with a bow window on the ground floor and roof extension to form a second floor

Number 329 was occupied by Frederick Nash, a rag merchant, from 1871 to 1928. The Valution in 1909/10 shows H G Gomm owned 329, which had two rag sorting buidings at the rear. The same records show Frederick Nash owned numbers 330 to 334, which were sold together with stabling in 1893 for 1300.

The photo shows no. 329 in a poor state. The smarter building to the right, no. 330, was used by Barratt's the undertakers from around 1913 into the 1940s (possibly later). The building to the left, no. 328, was used by Godden, a bootmaker in the 1920s/30s but there is no reference to no. 328 in the 1940 trade directory and it looks boarded up. The poster on no. 328 refers to a contest taking place on Friday March 16 1945.
