Harringay, Haringey - So Good they Spelt it Twice!
I think this was taken from where Ridge and Mountview Roads now are, then known as the Hog's Back. Had the photographer swung to the right he'd have had Harringay in his sights.

Thanks to Malcolm Hunt who has sent me the picture below. This is a view from the top of his building on Shepherd's Hill. As he points out, it makes a convincing case for Trevor's suggestion from 2010, that the photo was taken from Shepherd's Hill.
(PS: Trevor - still interested in your photos......)
So the photo description is wrong Hugh? It should be "Palace photo from the Shepherds Hill area", sports clubs( still existing) in foregound with Park Rd beyond. Houses in Cranley gardens on LHS?. Are there 2 large buildings in the centre & centre R ? one must be the racecourse grandstand ?? Malcolm's recent photo above is even harder to identify where that was taken from too !
The title's fine, but you might be right about the description. Looking at it closely, it does look like it may have been taken fr0om further west than the Hog's Back.
For comparison, here's Google Street View from the top of Ferme Park Road (which matches very well at a quick glance)
And, below is the bird's eye view from Shepherd's Hill, by the junction wit Coolhurst. It's probably a better match the than the Ferm Park one.
