The Belmont Cinema (later called the Plaza and the Essoldo) was built on this site in Sept 1939 (just in time for the war.) It closed in 1967. A rather grim looking Tesco store now occupies the site.

There appear to be railway sidings here to the south of the road bridge taking Kenton Lane over the Stanmore branch line railway. I would imagine that these were temporary sidings transporting building materials for the large scale housing construction taking place in the vicinity at this time. The original Belmont Station was situated to the north of the bridge and was opened in the September of the year this photograph was taken. The original construction was that of a basic wooden halt. It was replaced by a more substantial construction in 1937.

In fact I suspect some of the buildings shown carried on as the huts in which I was taught by Mrs Evans and Mr McCormick around 1956/7.
