Howard Webb sent this postcard showing a busy market day, early 1900s. The card is unused and printed and tinted by Wyndham, no. 7579.
It shows the eastern side of Market Place, with the Town Hall to the left.
The tinting is sparse: three areas pink, two in blue and two in beige.Two stalls are visible: one is a miscellany of secondhand goods - as if someone has emptied an Edwardian skip. The fish stall is to the right and has some fresh fish and what could be dried or smoked fish to the left. There are other stalls but their goods are not visible.
In the back ground is the Post Office.
This postcard view shows a quieter day and features the western side of Market Place around 1905.
The site has another Wyndham postcard, number 7574, showing the bank on the Half Acre corner.
Janet McNamara has written a history of Brentford Market.
