Harringay, Haringey - So Good they Spelt it Twice!

A nice companion piece to a couple of pictures I posted back in 2014 of this stretch of Turnpike Lane. This picture gives a better idea of what Haringey Grove was like.

All these buildings and roads were sacrificed the second stage of the Haringey Grove Redevelopment Project and it closed in 1971.

I think there were actually two tower blocks - Dylan Thomas and Hallam House.
