This photo was taken at the eastern end of Bury Street, Ruislip in 1907.

On the right of the picture are part of the buildings of the George Inn and Crookall's butchers shop on the corner of the High Street. Across the road, the white fronted shop was Laurence's baker shop from 1901 until 1907.

The lychgate to St Martin's church was erected in 1902 to commemorate the coronation of Edward VII.

To the left of the lychgate was the Old Bell Inn. The two cottages on the corner were demolished in 1927 for road widening. On the left is Hailey's post office and tea rooms where the first telephone exchange was sited.

The group of men caught by the camera include a clergyman and a policeman.

Ruislip

Ruislip is a London Underground station in Ruislip in north London. The station is on the Uxbridge branch of both the Metropolitan line and Piccadilly line, between Ruislip Manor and Ickenham stations.

Ruislip was formerly a parish in the county of Middlesex covering the neighbouring areas of Eastcote, Northwood, Ruislip Manor and South Ruislip. The parish appears in the Domesday Book, and some of the earliest settlements still exist today, designated as local heritage sites. The parish church, St Martin’s, dates back to the 13th century and remains in use.

The buildings at the northern end of Ruislip High Street form the core of the original village square and are now Grade II listed. It originally featured a central water pump which was moved out of the road in the 1970s as a result of increased traffic.

The Metropolitan Railway (Harrow and Uxbridge Railway) constructed the line between Harrow-on-the-Hill and Uxbridge and commenced services on 4 July 1904 with, initially, Ruislip being the only intermediate stop. At first, services were operated by steam trains, but track electrification was completed in the subsequent months and electric trains began operating on 1 January 1905.

The expansion of the Metropolitan Railway acted as a catalyst for development in the area. The parish council created a new urban district to address the forthcoming population growth.

The Ruislip-Northwood Urban District continued until 1965 when Ruislip became part of the newly established London Borough of Hillingdon.

Major landmarks in the area include Ruislip Lido, a former reservoir, now an area of public parkland with its own miniature railway and Manor Farm, a settlement dating from the 9th century which is now designates as a local heritage site.
