Harringay, Haringey - So Good they Spelt it Twice!

One of a series of eight photos contributed by Peter Brooks who grew up in the St Mary's Road area of Hornsey.

This picture was taken from the first floor of Peter's grandparents house at 40 St Mary's Road. He Peter told me that the lorry belonged to the familly who had a garage/workshop at 30a (visible on the map, set behind the other houses).

The victorian housing in the whole area was demolished in 1966. Those houses that were privately owned were compulsorily purchased. The area was built over with low rise flats and houses, all offered as council houses.

The excerpt from the Ordnance Survey map of 1952 shows the roads.
