Brentford Ferry, early 1900s

View from the Thames of the Ferry Hotel

Roger Williams provided a scan from his collection of this postcard by local publishers, Wakefield. It can be dated to before 1910 as there is no sign of the Brentford Monument, which was sited between the two sets of steps in 1909.

A ferry ran from the end of Ferry Lane across to Kew for several centuries. It closed around the time of the Second World War as it became uneconomic to run.

A similar view features on the back cover of 'Brentford As It Was', this dates from after the siting of the Brentford Monument. 'Brentford Past' includes more information about the ferry.
