This photo is one of a series of four that were kindly contributed by Deborah Janet Jones, whose father grew up in Westfield Road.
St Mary's Road joined Hornsey High Street just to the the east of Middle Lane. The Hornsey Tavern pub stands on the corner of where the two roads join. Westfield Road branched off St Mary's Road about 100 metres south of the High Street. Both roads then ran up the hill in parallel to each other and Middle Lane, in the direction of Crouch End.
The victorian housing in the whole area was demolished in 1966. The first three of these pictures capture the last moments of the old houses. (The fourth I think may be a few years earlier). The area was built over with low rise flats and houses, all offered as council houses.
The map attached as a comment shows the rough location and direction of each photo.
