This view is looking south-east towards Cheapside. Where the Keevans and Edmonds stores are shown on the left of the photo now stands the first part of the Shopping City development. The turning to the right is Alexandra Road.
(There was also a Keevans store on Hornsey High street right up to the mid 1980s. Another on Topsfield Parade in Crouch End survived a little longer, I think. The Hornsey branch was shown in the Kinks film for 'Come Dancing', a video for which used to be available on YouTube, but has now been blocked in the UK by the copyright holder )
