I posted on here recently about a photo in a Wood Green Film I'm cataloguing which  I thought was in Bounds Green, and instead got a seriously good "spot" from Hutch on Wood Green High Road. So I've…Continue

"I see what you mean about the paths, but the buildings aren't quite working for me. From the context, it is most likely to either be around Wood Green High Road, or in the White Hart Lane area (which I may have a quick drive to later, to check…"

"This could possibly be the grounds of the Passmore Edwards (later Wood Green) Cottage Hospital once located on what is now Rhys Avenue just past Bounds Green Tube? The convoluted paths seem like a match but most of the drawings and photos available…"

Ok, You History Buffs - more Wood Green on Film

I posted on here recently about a photo in a Wood Green Film I'm cataloguing which  I thought was in Bounds Green, and instead got a seriously good "spot" from Hutch on Wood Green High Road. So I've noticed that there seem to be rather a lot of proper local historians hanging out here, and I'd like some more of your expertise - even though its a bit "off topic" to Bowes Park & Bounds Green (probably). Hope that's o.k. Anyone able to tell me where this is (c.1905)?…See More

"Thanks. I may tweak slightly in the light of your comment.  And what a great article on the Palace Gates line! Will give it a more leisurely read later, but am already struck, not just by the research, but also the character you give it. I love…"

Wood Green & Bounds Green on Film

Hi. I'm a volunteer for London's Screen Archives, and I've been cataloguing a film about Wood Green (including bits on Bounds green) for them, trying to work out where all the places are, dates, people etc. I've done as much as I can from books & the internet, but now need a bit of  expert advice from local residents (yourselves), and perhaps a trip to the archive after…See More
