That's what I thought, when I first saw this image some time back. However, I have a sneaking suspicion that this might have been the old Fishmongers Arms on corner of Trinity Road, with White Hart Lane off to the right. I hadn't realised that it was still called High Road that far up from the Tube station

My bad. Now corrected. Careless of me. As I looked at other imahes I've put in the site, I see that there are very few of Fishmongers and one that show the full extend of the building, bar the small one added at the bottom of this thread.

Yes, Ken. In fact over time 'centre of action' on the High Road moved south as Wood green developed in the later nineteenth century. Before then, the High Road was really mainly north of the junction with Lordship Lane.
