Not Brentford

Brentford Market, 1906

Thanks to Vin Miles for sending this postcard which was published by local firm Wakefield. The card is postmarked 1906 and may date from the same year: the market had been at this site on Chiswick High Road since 1893 and an extension was opened in 1906. (For more about the history of Brentford Market read Janet McNamara's piece.)

The market is to the left of the photo and on the scan from Vin the date 1893 can just be made out over the entrance. The name James Stout & co is visible. The site also has a postcard showing the market frontage dating from around 1914.

To the right signage includes: Scale Makers, Kew Bridge Cigar Stores, Railway Dining Rooms: a reminder of nearby Kew Bridge station; a railway line ran along the side of the market along the 'Kew Curve', to the left of the view below. Just beyond the market lay London Stile Farm.
