Young’s Corner is where Chiswick ends and Hammersmith begins, and historically, it is where Middlesex ended and London began – and there really was a Mr Young, who leased a shop on the site in the mid-19th century.

Chiswick High Road, the main shopping street, runs west to east all the way through Chiswick. It starts at Chiswick Roundabout and runs east as far as the Goldhawk Road junction, known as Young’s Corner, which is visible in the photographs with its distinctive pointed tower.
