Harringay, Haringey - So Good they Spelt it Twice!

Rent book for 27 Westfield Road, Hornsey, 1961

One of a series of eight photos contributed by Peter Brooks whose paternal parents and grandparents lived in the St Mary's Road area of Hornsey.

This picture shows the rent book for Peter's parents' first house at 27 Westfield Road. He remembers that the landlady was a Gladys Chamerlain.

The victorian housing in the whole area was demolished in 1966. Those houses that were privately owned were compulsorily purchased. The area was built over with low rise flats and houses, all offered as council houses.

The excerpt from the Ordnance Survey map of 1952 shows the roads.

My family Millers owned and lived at 51 Westfield Road, which sadly was compulsorily purchased in 66.
