Hayes End, Middlesex, c1928

Hayes End, Middlesex, circa 1928. The Angel pub on the left is still there, but the semi-rural tranquility in this late 1920s postcard by WHA has vanished without trace. Most of the right had side of the postcard has been demolished. On the extreme right of the postcard is an old-fashioned butchers shop with animal carcasses hanging up on hooks. You don't see that anymore...

  1. You certainly don’t see that anymore, but I remember it fom butchers’ shops in my childhood about 50 years ago - and sawdust on the floor (to soak up the blood!).
