More Ealing Now and Then

When it was a pub

Last week I went and took some pictures of Ealing to compare with those in Ealing and Hanwell Past by Dr Peter Hounsell - here are a couple more - this one The Feathers from around 1910 and its present occupants Metro Bank opposite  a little changed shop now Carphone Warehouse - this despite a 'real IRA' bomb going off nearby in 2001

And Now it's a Bank.

The Town hall in 1901 was next to what is now The Metro bank, it is also a bank now  - it has always looked rather grand and that's why - The picture looks like it was taken from a higher vantage point than street level.

Slightly funny to think our present Town Hall might become a hotel in the not too distant future...
