Now we can see Burnt Oak as I remember it, dominated by the rather grand London Co-op built in 1936, at the top of Stag Lane. I remember also the Fifty Shilling Tailor, already a rather optimistic name by 1948, Hemmings the bakers, the Express Dairy at the corner of the Watling, John Ford, a traditional Sainsbury's, ABC bakers and tea room, and of course Sidney Hurry, what a name for an undertaker! One year the 50 bob tailor (by then called John Collier) rather foolishly put it's sale posters on the outside of it's windows. Needless to say they soon found their way on to the undertakers window!

Hi colsouth111,



It's really interesting to read your comments on the photos for this area. Growing up near enough to be familiar with the Stanmore-Kingsbury run (Jubilee line was the nearest access point for the tube network), I've found it very instructive to catalogue the air photos around the Edgware Road!



Yours, Katy
