Challenge, The - The house previously seen with the criss-cross fencing on top of a brick wall is the house behind the two central figures and whilst you're squinting at them don't forget Cottle's store on the right. Again we're at the crossroads of Brook Lane North, Brook Road South, Hamilton Road and New Road in Brentford.

Challenge, The - Reverse POV. The house with the fence is on the left and another corner shop appears just after, perhaps it was a branch of Arkwright's Open All Hours. The white wall has been seen before in 014 and Cottle's store should be under the white advertising sign on the right. Facing eastward on Hamilton Road in Brentford.
