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.

That's not you at the rear of the picture is it?

Could have been but somehow I don’t think so

Like you John I have many memories of the Hook, did you live on site my family did I was a Pickering Joe was my dad and in 1951 was Head Lad for Mr Hiscock attached to Stamford Bridge. You might have known my brother Joey.

Hi Caroline I remember Joe Pickering being in conversations at home. We lived at 3 Hook Lane. The second pair of semis up the ‘concrete road’. Did you live down the lane towards Northaw?
