This was originally the Willesden Smallpox Hospital. It later became Willesden Maternity Hospital at about this time (renamed Kingsbury Maternity Hospital in 1949). It ended its days as a mental health day care unit in 2006.

And now to Queensbury in 1931, a district that did not actually exist until the tube station was built in 1933, despite many earlier images on this site being labelled Queensbury. The path of the tube line is marked on this photo, but Queensbury is largely the empty fields above that line reaching up to the rather geometric layout of the Canada Park estate on the upper right. The name Queensbury was the result of a local newspaper competition held to name the tube station, the station have been something of an afterthought on the part of the Metropolitan as they hadn't realised the interest developers had in those empty fields.
