A Community Network for Bowes Park and Bounds Green
Here's a little challenge over the summer months - tell us about the odd and quirky things on the street where you live - Find three interesting things about your street, block or business and share them here.
As a starter here is something based on my own street:
Three things about ... Melbourne Avenue
No1. The Original drain covers in Melbourne Avenue front gardens are marked with the street name, and location as part of the casting.
It's a great bit of Edwardian Attention to detail - on a most basic and functional piece of engineering.
See picture below:
No2. The South side of Melbourne Avenue is a continuous terrace ... one block from Green Lanes through to Palmerston Road ... yet there is no number 29. House numbers jump from 27 to 31 - can anybody suggest why this might be?
No3. Topiary Smileys - over several years on of our neighbours has been cultivating a privet hedge into shape to create two smiling faces. A smile that is reciprocated every time I pass.
What about where you live? In a comment below - or in a new message - tell us about three interesting things close to home.
