Harringay, Haringey - So Good they Spelt it Twice!
Shot from a spot over the edge of the park near Green Lanes, probably just south of the New River, looking south.

This photograph is from the "Aero Photo Co" of Stoke Newington, they were not registered as a company, as far as I have found they were active 1905-8. They seem to have been good at registering copyright so we get some records from the National Archives. They used kites to lift their cameras not aeroplanes which is why the photo appears to be so low a position. Saying that the photo was taken using an aeroplane on their postcards seems just to be a ploy to help sell them - aeroplanes were very new and exciting at the time - more exciting that a kite. The copyright on this image was registered in April 1907, so the lack of leaves on the trees suggest take in the winter of 1906-7. http://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/details/r/C14231434
I'm just at an early stage of researching "Aero Photo Co".
Any idea what number is under the copyright? I can't see it clearly from the scan it looks like 37 although 97 would fit better in the Aero Photo Co numbering sequence.
Sorry, that's the best version I have. I'd go with. 37.
