Here’s a few more photograph comparisons of Ealing, West London, this time of Northfields Avenue. Again the old photos are from Britain in Old Photographs and the new ones I took a few weeks ago. These all show the junction of Mayfield Avenue and Northfields Avenue.

This shopping parade (above) was built in 1904 and Northfields avenue was named after the Great North Field that it was built through. It was again the arrival of the tram on the Uxbridge road that caused the area around this parade to be developed. The top photo was taken c. 1907 and the photo below c. 1913.
