Hillingdon, Middlesex, c1906 and 1912

Hillingdon, Middlesex, circa 1906 and 1912. In these two postcards we can see the Red Lion pub which appears to be largely untouched. However the surrounding area is much less rural. The road on the right has been cleared to widen the Uxbridge Road. We can see a tram in the postcard coming from Uxbridge. The photographic postcard was produced by W. H. Applebee of Ashford. Click the postcards to enlarge.

  2. What a fantastic postcard, it's such a beautiful scene. I imagine there must have been horses who were scared by trams.

  4. Such an amazing expansion of the road. The hotel looks nicely preserved but having a mortuary for a neighbor must be challenging to attract patrons. I bet they do more wakes than weddings.
