The last clearly shown hill with trees on the left of the near background hides Harringay House (between present-day Hewitt & Allison Roads). The ridge in the right background is Hog's Back - now Mountview. Ridge Roads. The photo was taken by George Shadbolt, one of the pioneers of early photography. An annotated excerpt of this picture is also provided on this website.
Excuse the watermarking. I promised Bruce Castle Museum to add a watermark prior to uploading.
