These photos are of Ealing Broadway from Britain in Old Photographs and are compared with my photos taken this year. This first one was taken in 1938 and shows The Feathers pub, a no. 97 bus to Brentford and the Wesleyan Church (now a Polish Catholic Church) in the background on the right. The pub is now called The Town House.

The photo below was taken in 1957 and shows the approach to Ealing Broadway station, with the pub on the right and Fosters on the left (now the Carphone Warehouse). All of the buildings are the same, except for the station itself on the right, which was rebuilt as an office block in 1965. In 1957 there must have been enough traffic for lights to be built in the middle of the road, which have now developed into a complex maze of traffic lights as you can see below.
