Harringay's History by Harringay Online
More historical photos than you can shake a stick at from 1860 onwards.
See a full list of the albums along with links, here.
Historic footage from 1920 on.
A series of eight articles on Wikipedia all thoroughly researched and referenced, if rather hurriedly written by Hugh, which when writen in 2007-08, together made up the first ever history of Harringay.
A new way to leaf through our neighbourhood's history. (as of November 2016 the Dipity website appears to no longer function. There is a version of the page on the Wayback Machine, but the critical parts are missing!))
5. History group
This group has a series of scrapbook articles which enrich the neighbourhood history.
6. Personal Memories Blogs
A collection of memories from times past written by former residents of the area.
7. In the Forum
Sometimes posts about Harringay's history get added to the forum. We've tried to gather as many as possible of those together here, (but there may be unlinked gems!).
8. Virtual Blue Plaque Map
A map charting the residences of the more well-known residents from our history. (Sadly the Community Walk Map seems not to be functioning 100% with Google Maps any longer, but it still good enough to see the key information). A work in progress begun in July 2010. More here.
