Wood Green Underground Station

Abandoned tram track of the east branch. This branch at 0.493 mile was slightly longer than the west branch ran to Wood Green Underground station. Opened on 9th May 1906 it ran for a short time to Bruce Grove Tottenham. On 20th October 1906, just 6 months after opening, a car half way up the hill - a gradient of 1 in 10, ran out of control right back to the gates but was halted before the sharp curves outside the gates. A sand bin half way down the hill was erected shortly afterwards. Both branches were closed on 11 September 1914 for the duration of WW1, reopening on 30th march 1920. The two route survived until replaced by diesel buses on 23rd February 1938.

Formed in 1866 The Alexandra Palace Company Ltd erected a large exhibition building to be known as The Alexandra Palace - after Princess Alexandra of Denmark who was later to marry the future Edward VII. The shell of the building was completed in 1866 but the money ran out. Completed in 1873, opening on the 24th May, but unfortunately only 16 days later on the 9th June was destroyed by fire leaving only the walls standing. Once again money was found and the Palace opened a second time on 1st May 1875, with a fine organ, a concert hall able to seat 3,500, and a theatre for 3,000.
