This would be the former Hornsey Road Station, it opened in 1872 and closed in 1943. No sign of it now survives. It is at the bottom of the attached map. Only Crouch Hill of the four stations shown now survives in use.

This was the northern terminus for the No. 14 bus. You would get off here and the empty bus would loop around to Beaumont Road, right outside "The Favourite". From there it would go on to Putney or sometimes Hamp ton Court.

Britains Toys original premises were in Lambton Road in 1912. The attached photo, taken from a book called "The British Toy Business" by Kenneth D Brown, seems to match this building.

Shaftesbury Road......The Shaftesbury Tavern was on the corner with Hornsey Rise, still is, I believe. The picture is my mother on the steps at No. 15, in 1955

Hi I am living now at 15 Shaftebry Road. Great to see this photo, do you have any more pictures of the road. Do you have any information on who lived here over the years. It's is now split into 4 flats like many old houses in the area. The Shaftesbury Tavern is still in business and changed little in terms of interior.

clee66....thank you for your interest. I have a few pictures from my life at #15. Film and developing was expensive then and we had to take few pictures. Where would you like me to send the few I have?

The 1939 A-Z map shows this as Grenville Road, but the 1863 map shows it as Granville Road.

William Britain, founder of Britains Toys, lived in a house called Nugent House, somewhere in Lambton Road. I guess it was near the factory shown in Spears Road. Anybody know where it was?

This was Britains Toy Soldier factory. It closed around 1966 and the building was then split into small factory units. Some of those included Cypriot dress making companies as well as a double glazing company that featured on Bernard Braden's TV show because of its sharp practices! This was Window Seal Double Glazing - it went bust around 1969 owing substantial sums!

Thanks again for marking this as my great great grand uncle was William Britain, the founder of Britains Toys.

Well that explains a big childhood mystery...I could hear a stamping machine sometimes running until 11PM from the direction of Lambton Road. ( I lived on Shaftesbury Rd.)They were making toy soldiers!

I'm not sure about this station. There is no station shown here on my 1968 A-Z guide. Crouch Hill Station is south of here so it is not that one. This railway line looks like the one that runs between Highgate and Finsbury Park - and there is no station shown here as noted above. However, this does look like a station!

There actually was a railway station there, in what was later turned into Parkland Walk. It may have been a proposed extension of the Underground before the war.

Before the land around Lambton Road, Ormond Road, Holland Road, etc, was developed, it was owned by The National Land Society as shown circled in red on the attached scan of part of an 1863 map of North West London.
