The photo didn't come marked, but I'm fairly certain of the date. Firstly, the Metropolitan Electric Tramways service from Finsbury Park to Green Lanes started in 1904. So it can't have been any earlier. Second, in the background, Wordsworth Parade looks like it's just being completed and has only one occupant, in the final premises of the terrace. Zooming in. it's possible to make out the words 'Estate Age...' on the shop front. This matches with Kelly's directory for 1904. In the same year, they show only 6 Wordsworth Parade occupied. The tenant was Stanley Parkes & Brown, Auctioneers & Estate Agents. The following year, the whole parade is shown as occupied.

Well done on dating the photo. I appreciate the method and the success. As a genealogist this is a journey I've often taken.... not usually with such forensic success.
