Harringay, Haringey - So Good they Spelt it Twice!

Bartons was the major department store in Wood Green from the start of the 20th century until it was closed down by a fire in 1968. The railway bridge across Wood Green High Road used to carry a similar advert.

I remember as a child in the 70's during the summer holidays getting a train from Harringay stadium to Barking and then changing on to another train from Barking to Southend.

You can still do that - from Harringay Green Lanes, get the overground (with brand new air conditioned trains) and change at Barking for the train to Southend

I lived in Roseberry Gardens, but as was quite normal it is obscured in the murk! Loving that close to the Stadium meant that I spent many a Saturday night at the Stock Cars. Happy days.

This side and on the corner of Umfreville in the 60s was Derek Newport's electrical shop within which my first love worked as cashier. Many a time I would meet her on my regrettably still L-plated motorbike to walk her home. Like you did back then.
