Brentford Gasworks, mid to late 1950s

Peter Timms sent this atmospheric photo of the gasworks, thought to date from the mid- to late 1950s. 'I recall that you could see the gas works from some distance around and the smell of gas was always in the air'.

The view is from the south side of the Thames which occupies the foreground. The site has a very similar view, also taken in the mid 1950s and this includes a few notes about the gasworks.
