temper temper the old dairy
NO ! ! !
The Park Tavern?
Ooooh Misscara you do have beady eyes. I think it's gone now.
I do think I remember it, but having said that it's a painting of a park so it had to be the Park Tavern didn't it?
Misscara, I thought you were more familiar with the insides of pubs than the outsides.Rather a sweet, 1950-ish painting I thought.Anyone else have a picture?
Not a picture, but...
Where and what are/were Gilbert & How?
If I had a photo it would give the game away.
Pic is of Detritus and Muss Annie in there younger dayz
G&h - department store.
Photographers studio in SG Road
Was that the name of a furniture shop? Possibly now sainsburys local?
Was it the shop on the corner opposite Nandos? A gentlemens outfitters?
No, that was Elkins Bros. Brilliant for underpants.
This has to have come from one of the photos in the back room of the Shaftesbury - it could have been a butchers or a greengrocers
This thread is cool. Can anyone add a pic or do we get the last one first?
The evidence of Gilbert and How is still visible in situ.
Auctioneers - next door to the Old Dairy.
Not next door. The dining room.
Fully G&H were Auctioneers, Estate Agents and Surveyors.
Really like this thread - haven't a clue about some of photos or comments...but know that I will be looking for that red brick and all the other stuff I've just discovered on the next 4 pages!
Glad you could stop by, Fstrthnthspdflght. Fancy starting a Slow Party branch here? Slwrthnslth
Next question. Where is this gable, and what's the connection between it..........and these?
Mr Bassett live there above Doc surgery I think ?
Nearly right! It's the building where Sainsbury's is now (used to be Woody's). It was once the home of George Osborne Barratt, founder of the confectionery company that made Liquorice Allsorts, Aniseed Balls, Jelly Babies, Dolly Mixtures, and Sherbet Fountain. The building is now little Sainsbury's at the top of Stroud Green Road. According to this website George Barratt lived at number 175 in the 1880s. The firm he started produced sweets in Wood Green until the 1970s. It's now part of Cadbury's. (The old Chocolate Factory in Wood Green has now got a restaurant and arts centre and stuff in it.)Apparently old George Barratt was a good employer and built a little model village in Wood Green for his employees - some of the houses are still there.
loving this thread - really interesting. I've been taking a lot more interest in local ... what would you call it, trivia? ... lately after reading up on the history of Parkland Walk. and the green man! and then discovering that Stephen King wrote a short story inspired by said walk/green man called 'Crouch End'. keep em coming, krappyrubsnif!
The Stephen King story is excellent. The TV adaptation...isn't. But is almost worth watching for how thoroughly wrong it gets, well, everything.
