Some wonderful pictures from Major EJ Wests collection of photographs of West’s Brewery

There is a whole album of pictures that we have been allowed to post here by Major West’s grandson…here are the first few…more to follow ….taken around 1900 – 1920.

According to the latest edition of the Societies ‘A Century of Brewers’ the firm was located at the Three Crowns Brewery, 313/315 Hackney Road, Bethnal Green, London. It was registered in 1895, although the album indicates that the brewery was established in 1822. Hoare & Co. Ltd. acquired the firm in November 1929, with over 60 public houses, and closed it a few months later. (Journal of the British Brewery Society.)

Thank you to the expert Brewery History Society for their help.
