Harringay, Haringey - So Good they Spelt it Twice!

This photo shows 1-19 Stroud Green Road, looking towards Seven Sisters Road.

The third premises from Seven Sisters Road (third from the left), is showing here as the White House Restaurant. It is now Dotori.

Number 9 - 19 were demolished when station place was widened in the 1930s.

Below is the list of shops in the terrace in 1913.

And thanks to Roy who many years ago posted the following ad, apparently from 1944.

Proprietor, Piazza is another of the Swiss Italians who lived in the area. Round the corner, compatriot Pietro Pazzi ran another restaurant. However a report in the Islington Gazette in 1912 suggests that the proprietor was in fact one Charles Berti (also a Swiss Italian). A few years later the name F Louis Berti is given as the proprietor.

The bloke driving the omnibus is on his phone. How typical.

You're finding some amazing stuff relating to my Swiss compatriots!

Thanks Hugh.

I notice the proprietor of the White house restaurant is A B Piazza - he of the Finsbury Park establishment I assume? http://storage.ning.com/topology/rest/1.0/file/get/2058711444?profi...

Well, probably not. See my text with the original post, linking to the restaurant by the FP Gates.

For starters, the FP Gates restaurant was run by Pietro Pazzi; that's somewhat different to A.B. Piazza. Secondly, an Islington Gazette article (and other listings) give the proprietor of the White House as Charles Berti.
