Not Brentford

The Butts and Cottage Hospital, early 1900s?

Peter Stuart provided a scan of this sepia postcard. It dates from the early 1900s judging by the car-free area and the size of the trees planted along the pavement.

This was a favourite view of photographers, showing the Cottage Hospital on the corner; a similar view, perhaps a few years earlier judging by the size of the trees has links to further images.

The photo below includes a distant building on the Half Acre. The OS map from the 1890s shows the Seven Stars public house at this location, but as the pub was demolished in 1905 we are most likely looking at a replacement building.

The other properties along from the Cottage Hospital are hidden by the trees but include a convent, set back a little.
