Yet more time travel

I decided to visit Hunt End in 1945 using google Earth. The old Royal Enfield factory (by that time it had been sold to Dunlop) is there. So is the building that is currently the Red Lion Pub (I marked it with a red arrow). Could it be that it was there when the Enfield factory was in place and the workers stopped there for a pint? In the 1945 google map you need to ignore the streets, they appear shifted to the left of the picture. This is what the place looks today. The old factory burnt down in the 60's and the current industrial estate is new. The roads flanking it are now called, appropriately, Enfield road and Dunlop road.
