Waitrose Ltd at 190 Acton Lane, Chiswick W4 opened c1913. The telephone number for the branch was Chiswick 1099 and early closing day was on a Wednesday.

In the 1914 photograph, the tall gentleman in the doorway was Manager, Mr Jack Charity and the young man in the foreground was apprentice Walter Morford.

The branch closed in 1924 when Mr Waite was in sole charge of the business and decided to concentrate on developing stores in more recently developed areas like Ealing, Golders Green etc.

  • I have lived in the Ground floor flat of 190 Acton Lane since 1998. Thanks to your memory store I have both these pictures framed and hanging up in the hall and the WhatsApp group name for 190 with the upstairs flat is The House of Waitrose.
