Hugh, these are absolutely wonderful - thank you for continuing to find these marvellously pieces of history of Green Lanes.

I really like those old adverts.

Glad you both likee. I thought they help to bring those old photos to life. I have another bunch to process yet.

I notice that on a wall next to the Harringay bridge is an advert for a performance by Cicely Courtneidge.  If anyone is interested in absorbing the full early 20th century experience by listening to one of her famous routines while gazing at the picture of the bridge then go to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FpUCS4LOXCU

fascinating stuff Hugh, thanks for posting! I guess the trade in 'ornamental cakes' is the most enduring :)
