This picture the start of the curve of the river as it swept around Harringay House. In the mid-distance is the bridge over the newly built Wightman Road. Beyond it is the old embankment of the Great Northern railway when it was just a two track line.
You can see from this map that it was directly due north of where Seymour and Hewitt Roads are, but is now built over by the much-expanded railway line.
This sketch shows a similar view, from the other direction.
This contemporary photo shows roughly the same spot, showing the same bridge over the river, with Ally Pally in the background.
