Not Brentford

Postcard of St George's Church, Brentford, early 1900s

Tinted postcard of church and surrounding buildings

This postcard is postmarked April 5 1907 but may be an earlier image. It has been tinted.

The pink property at far left in the distance is on the western corner of North Road and numbers 364 onwards approach the viewer.

The single storey building next to the church is the Green School and Church Alley runs alongside it - the gap is visible.

By the time of the 1911 census this stretch of the High Street was occupied by offices for the Gas Works.

The card was addressed to Miss E Gillings, 1 Upper Brook Street, Grosvenor Square, W and the message:
'Dear L. meet me this evening at Bond St Tube between 5.30 & 6. I will wait there till then hope you will be able to come I shall not keep you long & I have a parcel for you do try and come with love A.'
I hope she turned up and A. was not disappointed.
