Not Brentford

Brentford Police Station, around 1908 - 1910

Imposing 3 storey building Howard Webb has provided this scan of a 'fine Young & Co' postcard showing Brentford Police Station at 42 High Street. It was posted in October 1910 and Howard dates the photo to around 1908 - 1910.

This is Brentford's second Police Station, built in 1869 at 42 High Street to replace the first Police Station at no. 60 High Street, on the corner of Town Meadow Road.

This second Police Station was replaced in 1969 by a new building in Half Acre.

Howard kindly provided a high resolution scan which allows some of the poster headlines to be made out 'Recruits Wanted', 'Special Reserve' and ' Royal Navy ... Royal Marines ... Admiralty Recruiting Office'.

The neighbouring building, number 43, has an aspidistra (I think) in a pot in the downstairs window.

Enlargements showing the PC in the doorway and the three men to the left of the original follow.

Thomas Faulkner was the sub-divisional officer at the Police Station in 1913 (trade directory).
