|Brentford's past on the web|
Who lived in your house in 1936? Find out here
Of particular interest is Peter's roll-call of residents, house by house, from the Brentford, Chiswick and Gunnersbury Street Directory of 1936. Your author feels the spirit of Percy Lemon, former inhabitant of where these words are being uploaded, as he types these words. Whether or not the aforementioned Mr Lemon was the proprietor of Lemons Bakery (one of three on the high street) is not recorded. However, one can easily imagine Percy heading to Mrs Woods Pie and Eel Shop, perhaps to have lunch with the owner of the nearby Licensed Horse Slaughterer.
