Stroud Green & Harringay Library visible by lower left edge and the Harringay railway station building straddling the tracks before it burnt down.

 Despite 266 previous viewers, I must respectfully comment that either this is the wrong photo (or wrong description) & that Ferme Park sidings are not shown here at all !: Harringay Station is straddling the tracks as Clive says above. This view is from the south/ south-west ? So the main line bridge in the foreground is over the North London Line ? ( N.London Line is at right angles & going underneath) The curve to the left is the ( later perhaps?) present connecting rail curve.( upper part of Stroud Green rd curves to lower left)  My Godfrey map of 1911-15 calls the church  shown (near cente)  as St Paul's church for some unknown reason. ( Wikipedia page does not help) It is on the corner of Burgoyne rd and Wightman Rd. The rail over-bridge to Ferme Park sidings is just starting on the extreme left. Sidings therefore are off picture to the left.

A mystery conduit ?  is shown on Godfrey repro map of 1912 parallel to the main line & crossing N london line and visible here as a long black shadow near camera.

Thanks Gerry - error corrected - trying to do too much in too little time!

I can't find my bearings - I live in wood green but where is Wightman Road?

The big church in the centre is the old St Paul's Church. You can see Wightman running north and south just in front of it and beyond it the paralell lines of the Ladder roads.
