I'm guessing the date. But that looks very much like a bull-nosed Morris which was made between 1913 and 1926. So I plumped for a date in the middle of that. It could of course be an old car at the time this photos was taken and be later than 1926.
Note the dutch gable ends-cum-pediments on the buildings on Broadway. These have now been removed. It makes quite a difference.
In respnse to a question asked by john McMullan, some history on the Harringay Arms.
The pub had opened and was fielding sports teams by 1864. I can find no earlier record.
Bell's Life in London and Sporting Chronicle - 1 October 1864
By way of confirmation:
Islington Gazette - 25th Nov,1873
The earliest Kelly's Directory I can access is 1892. This shows that at that time, the street address was 4, Chapel Place
Of course, the story brings us immediately to the question of the-ey and -ay forms of Harringay/Haringey.
In almost the same year the Ordnance Survey map shows the -ay form for the road almost opposite the pub.
Now both are permanently reversed.
In 1894, the pub was one of several premises sold by H.W. Elder's trustees on death of Mrs. Sarah Elder. It seems that spelt the end of the pub for a few decades. It's probably worthy of noe that the documentation of that sale refers to the premises as a "Beer House" rather than a public house.
By 1896, the Haringey Arms ceased trading as a pub and became a beer seller. Perhaps Samuel Austin lost his victualler's licence. At any rate, the business had been taken on by James Winch who had obviously succeeded in getting a licence for off-sales. The address was now 143 Crouch Hill.
Kelly's Directory, 1896
By 1902, the business was being run by Walter Shilling and in 1908, it was taken over by John Price Morgan. Then the following year it Kelly ceases listing it. One assumes it had gone out of business.
See my comment below for the end of the story.
