Harringay, Haringey - So Good they Spelt it Twice!

In 1794 Harringay's first pub, the 'Queen's Head', was established as a road tavern. Well situated for visitors to Alexandra Palace in later years, it also had a tea garden. When it was modernised in 1898, the builders found a solid gold ring with an inset emerald from the 14th century. The ring was given to the British Museum where it still is today.

The Cinema Theatre Association ran an article in their magazine investigating whether the Premier Electric was the oldest cinema in the country. See the Premier Electric / Curzon Cinema, Duckett's Common circa 1910 photo for more info and photos on the Premier Electric.
