The Titanine Paint factory on Sheaveshill Avenue

Was this the same Titanine Ltd, of Booth Road, manufacturer of aeroplane varnish which exploded in a massive conflagration 'like Vesuvius' in 1921? If so, there is a film* of the spectacular fire which destroyed most of the works, but presumably it was rebuilt and switched to other paint manufacture by 1936?

Interestingly this was originally known as Booth Road, named after Abraham Booth, a speculative builder now long forgotten but once known as the father of Colindale. The name Booth was transferred to the road between Colindale Ave and Montrose Ave.

Colin Park Road and the immediately adjacent roads were built by John Laing to an advanced spec for the time that included cavity walls as standard and Critall windows at the rear. They were marketed as "The Little Palaces Of Colindale" priced at between £795 and £895. A deposit of £50 and just over 30s (£1.50) a week for 25 years and the palace was yours.

Do you know anything about the houses on Colindale Avenue called "Colindalia"?

Five years on from the previous image and we have the Davies Tyre factory, Colin Park Road and its adjacent turnings all now in place.
