Not Brentford

315 High Street, Brentford, 1905

Peter Stuart provided this postcard image advertising the Osborne's shop at 315 High Street. The same photo appears in 'Archive Photograph Series Brentford' where the caption suggests it dates from around 1902. There is another postcard of this shop on site, however the prominent windows advertisement 'Pure new milk 4d a quart' is only in the image below. Other advertising below is for Cailler's Chocolate, Packer's Chocolate Crispets, Fry's Chocolate, Murray's...

Families were waited upon three times daily and milk arrived from the farm twice daily too.

The rear of the card (always useful to see) has no publisher name but has a divided back with the note 'For inland postage only, this space may be used for communication' on the left and 'The address only to be written here' on the right, with the place to stick the stamp indicated with a dotted line.
