This shows Crouch Hill. The best estimate of the precise location is that it was taken from the Stroud Green side of Crouch Hill, just north of Crouch Hill Station, looking north up the hill towards Crouch End. I think the first church on the right is the Presbyterian Church and the one beyond is the Wesleyan (You can see the spire of the other church between "a" and "Curated" of the watermark - Click View Full Size below right for a larger version of the image). These churches stood almost opposite Shaftesbury Avenue. On the hill beyond there still stood some huge early Victorian mansions with immense gardens. All were gone by the middle of the 20th Century.
