Hi

This is a picture of my grandfather outside the Anerley Radiator Works where he was employed. He is on the left. This would be in the 1920s I think.

Does anyone know where the Anerley Radiator Works was?

The second picture shows him with some others at the same place with a machine that had presumably just been made.

Just a guess, but judging by the slope in the top picture, probably on Anerley Hill?

From google street view it looks as though it could be 104 Anerley Road.
Racing Passion next door used to be a very old Ironmongers (spelling?) shop.
I used to have to go there in the 60's to get parafin from the machine outside.
Fom memorey it was 2 shillings (about 20P) a gallon.
