Harringay online

Harringay, Haringey - So Good they Spelt it Twice!

I have looked with great interest at the old photos of Harringay Racetrack.

Has anyone got any photos they can post of The Hook Kennels, Northaw, which was the kennels which serviced Harringay Racetrack?  My mum used to work there as a kennel maid May, 1949 to Christmas 1950 and still thinks foundly of it.  Now in her 80's, I would love to see some photos of how the kennels used to be and also how they looked before they closed.  Many thanks.

I guess you've seen these two?



Hi,  I'm looking for anyone or pics from hook kennels, 1967-1970.  If you know anyone or have any pics of staff from this time would love to hear from you.  :)

Hi -No I haven't seen any photos apart from a couple that my Mum has herself.  There seems to be nothing on the internet at all about The Hook.  Thank you so much, I can show her these.


You can buy a copy of the top picture. Click the picture to go through to the Getty website.

Hello my name is Pamela and I started at the Hook Kennels a year after your Mum left.
I worked for Tr. Taylor and then Mr.H.Buck and I do have a few photographs.

Hello Pamela

Many thanks for replying.  I would love to get hold of copies of any photos you have.  Are you in a position to get them scanned and emailed to me - which shouldn't cost you anything.  If not, is it possible to get copies printed off and I will send you the money.  Many thanks.


Hello Christine, leave this with me and I will dig the photos out and see what I can do.

How old is your Mother and her first name please. 

I have put some photographs up might interest your Mum

Can you give us all a link, Pamela?

The pictures are on my page. How do I give you a Link. Sorry I'm a learner at this

Done - I've linked "on my page" in your comment.

May Harringay online prosper.
