Not Brentford

Council Offices, Brentford around 1907-1911

Howard Webb has provided a scan of a postcard published by Young & Co. around 1907-1911.
Sepia view of 7-bay Georgian building

Clifden house was at the junction of Boston Manor Road and Windmill Road and was built for the Viscount Clifden around 1730. Brentford Local Board used the buiding as their headquarters from 1888-1897, then Brentford Urban District Council occupied the building until 1927, when the merger with Chiswick formed Brentford and Chiswick UDC. Brentford's first library was at Clifden House from 1890 until the purpose-built Public Library opened next door in 1904. Clifden House was demolished in 1953. See a slightly earlier view for a better idea of its setting.
