Not Brentford

Boston Road, Brentford

Photographer and his car
Older lady and childHoward also provided a high resolution scan allowing us to see the details of the photographer and his car (which includes the Wakefield logo used on their postcards), and the little girl and older lady out walking

Boston Road runs from Half Acre to the north west out of Brentford and by 1935 was 'Boston Manor Road'. Boston Farm is visible in the background: the 1894 South Ealing OS Map (by Alan Godfrey) shows the farm as three blocks of buildings making roughly three sides of a square, with the open side to Boston Road.

In 1904 Jasper Edward King was recorded in the New Brentford Electoral Register at Boston Farm.
