Staines in the 1950's

Arial photo of Staines in the 1950's

This photo shows the Lino Factory from the air.

Top left shows the gas tank along the Causeway with the river running just below it, just right of the largest width of the river is St Mary's Church.

The top right corner shows the Lino factory with the big chimney. the buildings that come towards the centre of the picture are also the Lino, below those buildings is the High Street that comes right down to the bottom right corner.

The big building in the left bottom segment is the Mumford and Lobb storage building that was pulled down to make way for the new one way street plan.

The railway line to Windsor is running from middle right to bottom left.

The red dot is where Church Street, High Street and Clarence Street meet, by the Town Hall/Market Square.


Josie Greens and Susan Peters, in the early 60's.
This is at the end of Church Street meeting up with Clarence Street. Where the George pub is now.


The first Tesco Shop in Staines in the early 60's.
If the lady in the photo above turned down the opening behind her she would get to the Tesco's shop.
This was a nice little market there were various things sold there.

We have again revamped the website for the 40th Anniversary of the Museum. Please take a look at the Queen's Award page, the Accessibility page, the photos of Staines page and the Lino page. There is also a map page showing how to get to us, people are always saying to us that they didn't know that we are located through the Library, on the map page we show photos of our building related to everywhere else around us.

We also have NEW pages showing the Exhibits that are supposed to be in the Thames Room, however they can be seen on here while we are closed, due to the Coronavirus.
