Lamson Paragon Supply Co Ltd from 1920 Paper goods. The site on Shoelands Farm had previously been that of Thrupp & Maberly Ltd, yet another coach building company, who moved from this site to premises in Cricklewood and also later at Warple Way, Acton. They were eventually absorbed into the Rootes Group of motor manufacturers.

Possible terminus of light railway that ciruited the Hendon Aerodrome, starting at Aerodrome Road, as a spur coming of LMS line nearby.

User Comment Contributions

The title including the place name 'Queensbury' is erroneous, for no such place existed until about 1933 or 34 after the Metropolitan Railway had built their branch to Stanmore and a name was being sought for the new station serving a previously ill-defined and undeveloped area. The name was decided by a competition, the winning name obviously being an allusion to nearby Kingsbury.



The Met Railway employed a similar method for arriving at a name for their new station at Northwood Hills.
