Description

An amateur film of floral colour in Haringey.

The film begins by the clock tower on Crouch End Broadway, moving swiftly on to Hornsey Town Hall and its glorious flower beds. Some shots of Muswell Hill show municipal planting in raised beds on the corner of Fortis Green Road and Muswell Hill Broadway. Some more beds filled with flowers are filmed around the junction of Fortis Green Road and Queen's Avenue. Then it's back to Muswell Hill Broadway with a view of buses waiting in the roundabout, hanging baskets on surrounding lamp posts and a bus conductor counting change whilst sat on a bench surrounded by a flower bed. Some more municipal planting is filmed along Muswell Hill Road, beginning at the bottom by the junction of Park Road and Priory Road and heading back up towards the Broadway. A woman walks off of Muswell Hill and down to benches overlooking the old railway line between Highgate and Alexandra Palace (the track has been removed, but the platforms of Muswell Hill Station remain). Some children are filmed running through the concrete underpass that has replaced the railway tunnel under Muswell Hill. The next shots show parks gardeners in Shepherd's Hill Gardens, using a mower to cut the lawn at the top and dead heading flowers. Some members of the public rest on park benches and enjoy the view over towards Alexandra Palace. More park benches are enjoyed in Midhurst Gardens on Fortis Green Road. Exterior shots of the 'John Baird' public house on Fortis Green Road include views of more flower beds on the corner of Princes Road. Along Park Road, Crouch End views of the row of shops approaching the junction with Lynton Road include street tree planting. Exterior shots of 'The Princess Alexandra' public house on Park Road include views of flower beds on the corner of Palace Road and opposite. The flats at Ramsey Court have their flower filled gardens and balconies filmed also. The front gardens of Springfield Avenue, Muswell Hill are recorded from a moving car and by a roaming pedestrian. A woman and a man are filmed walking past more flower beds on the route into Crouch End Playing Fields off of Park Road, opposite Park Avenue. The film then moves along Park Road taking in the entrance to the North Middlesex Cricket, Lawn Tennis & Bowls Club; and Hornsey Parish Church on the corner of Cranley Gardens. More gardens are filmed in the grounds of apartments at Dale Court, by the forecourt of Palace Motors and outside the open Air Swimming Pool. There a dip in the waters of the pool with views of children enjoying the water slide, paddling pool and diving boards. Then the action moves to The Priory Park, taking in its tea room and formal planting. Along The Campsbourne road, things are a bit grimmer, with boarded up windows in terrace housing, smashed glass, broken fences and decaying brickwork. Some demolition work is filmed in action with men a machines tearing down housing and collecting rubble. New housing comes in the form of flats at Shelley House on Boyton Road, and Elgar House in Boyton Close. The tree lined pavements of Coolhurst Road and Twyford Avenue provide green barriers to the houses. The traffic is much heavier on High Street Hornsey a sit thunders toward Turnpike Lane, but there's some relief in the Garden of Remembrance by the tower of St Mary church.

Grew up in Muswell Hill and went to Tetherdown Primary School and Hornsey High. We lived in Woodland Gardens and Dad paid £800 for number 65 during the war. Those houses are now fetching nearly £2 million. The film brought back many happy memories.

My parent and grandparents lived in Crouch End, Hornsey for many year....I joined them at 25 Lynton Road off Park Road when I was born on 5 May 1941. I worked at Palace Motors in Park Road when Jack Flock and his family owned the place, it was great fun working there. I loved both Crouch End and Muswell Hill as they were both wonderul areas prior to Haringey coming into being, Such a wonderful film for which I thank you, happy memories!

That's brilliant footage if there is anymore stuff like that around I would love to view it I am born bread from hornsey went to stationers school left in 1979 . Especially if anyone has got footage of Alexandra palace of horse racing I would to see that or anything from area
On 11 November 2016, Richard Clarke said:
I went to Rokesly Infants in 1950 and then to Crouch End Junior (demolished in 1975, now a private estate development), my first classroom was in the prefab at the end of Tivoli Road, with a brilliant teacher, Mr Neuberg.
On 11 November 2016, Richard Clarke said:
Brilliant film. I wonder if anyone knows of what happened to "The Sweet Co-op" made around the same time (prob 1957) by the Hornsey Junior Film Club - about kids who decide to pool their money to make their own sweets faced with the high cost of mass-produced sweets - the film was produced with a grant from the London Cooperative Society but there's no copy in their archives.
On 7 October 2016, Russell Shaw Higgs said:
I went to Rokesley Infants in the mid 1960s, and then Crouch End Junior School (which used to be on the corner of Park Road and Wolseley Road) 1967 - 71. We lived in Tivoli Road from the mid 1960s till 1972, in a house that used to have the dinner huts for Crouch End Juniors right next to it. The house was previously lived in by various members of my family, my nan, aunts and uncles, in the 1950s (and maybe the 40s). The house was purchased from my family by Haringey Council in 1972. I have a few old photos in the street.
On 5 October 2016, Muswell Hillbilly said:
Not that it matters too much but I think this was mostly filmed in mid-late 1960 as Dentist in the Chair was made/released then and also the park opposite the old ABC cinema wasn't actually opened until 1960. Still, great film but what a shame the cameraman didn't show more of Fortis Green Road, esp. the much-missed Athenaeum , bought and demolished by Sainsbury's!
On 27 July 2016, Steve Manlow said:
I was born in Muswell Hill 1956 and lived in Mayfield Road N8, right opposite Stationers a School. I went to Rokesley infants and then juniors, finally went to Stationers.
On 28 June 2016, Tony said:
Lovely film, grew up in the area and my father was a bus driver at Muswell Hill garage so I have focused on the buses shown. Dad drove on the 212 route which became the W7. I would love to know if a higher resolution version is available and if it was cut as the time sequence and the historical facts do not coincide. Bus route 212 was single deck RFs until Jan 1960 and thereafter was double deck RTs. These appear out of sequence in the film. The majority are double deck with summer flowers which would put the date as 1960 not 1959 for those sequences. Muswell Hill train station operated until 1957 and the tracks and station buildings were removed and the concrete tunnel shown put in place to strengthen Muswell Hill to allow the double deckers by 1959 as the new service started in Jan 1960. Note the comment below about the film advertised at the cinema which also puts a 1960 date on those scenes.
On 16 June 2016, Gill. said:
What a nostalgia trip! I grew up in Muswell Hill between 1955 and 1975. The film brought back so many memories, especially the open air pool. I worked in Hornsey Library behind the Town Hall, strange to see it again.
On 25 May 2016, Ruth Porter (nee Heap) said:
This is fascinating, I was born in 1947 and we lived close to Priory Park and spent many, many days at the pool. Brought back SO many memories, thank you
On 23 May 2016, Judyth Simpson nee Skinner said:
Thank you for this film, it's delightful. Just as I remember Crouch End, where I grew up....from 1947 till 1966 in Weston Park. (Went to Rokesly School then Hornsey High)....
It is so great to see front gardens, instead of concrete parking places as they are today. We didn't appreciate what a well cared for Borough it was. I was also slightly amused at the number of older ladies in hats making a beeline for the park benches !!!! I remember shopping at the Co-op on the corner of Park Rd with Ration Books, then going to the Clinic near the Town Hall for tins of National Dried Milk and bottles orange juice., paying the Gas and Electricity. Bills at their offices by the Town Hall, queuing for bread at Dunn's and going to Wilsons Department Store for Haberdashery!!... then there was the Paper Man who stood outside Barclays Bank on the corner of Weston Park..... and getting the chimney swept by Firkins in Middle Lane. Happy days .
On 21 May 2016, Mrs Linda Gladding said:
I was born in Boyton Road, Hornsey in 1947. We moved to Muswell Hill in 1952. My first school was Campsbourne School. When I was older we used to go to Durnsford Swimmng Baths. So many memories. This is a great reminder of my very young years. Thank you so much for posting it.
On 11 May 2016, Emma said:
This is the most wonderful footage and brought back all sorts of memories. I was born in 1959 and brought up in Highgate, went to school in Crouch End (Highgate Wood) and walked to school down Shepherds Hill every day. My mother did a weekly shop in Muswell Hill and then later I lived in Crouch End for many years. In reply to a previous comment, I think the cinema at the top of Muswell Hill was an ABC. Speaking of which, the film that is advertised outside is called 'Dentist in the Chair' which was released in 1960. Absolutely fascinating to see all the bomb damage around Campsbourne and Park Road as it used to be and the swimming pool - I could reminisce for hours but I'll stop now. Thank you for sharing this film with us all.
On 11 May 2016, Barbara said:
I grew up in Muswell Hill during the 60’s & 70’s going to Tetterdown School & Hornsey School for Girls in Crouchend. I remember great times had at Park Road Pool, Saturday morning pictures at The Odeon Muswell Hill, Brownies & Girl Guides at The United Reform Church and using Red Rover tickets on the old Route Master Buses.
On 10 May 2016, Danny said:
Very enjoyable. I lived in Muswell Hill in the 1950s and 60s. Great seeing the familiar places, the people, the cars, the shops. Brings back a lot of memories.
On 8 May 2016, Redman said:
Enjoyed it thoroughly. I found an old map of the Hornsey borough which identified all the WW2 bomb hits and which type of bomb too. The Priory park paddling pool was a direct result of a V2 rocket ! My own block in Middle Lane N8 was built on a V1 hit.
Watching the film while glancing at the bomb map helped identify why some blocks appear as there do in Crouch End.
Hornsey was targeted during the war because of its railway junctions amongst other things. Campsbourne Estate was constructed over a part of Hornsey that was flattened by the Luftwaffe, this is very clear looking at the film of that area. Much of London remained untouched for years because the cost of clearing and rebuilding and by 1959 (the time of filming) the urban revival was in full swing as shown by some of the new buildings next to old craters.
Fantastic walk back through local history.
On 7 May 2016, Vivien said:
Great to see So many flowers/beds and shrubs. Hornsey was a borough that took pride in its gardens. So many of these sites have disappeared now or the remains are not planted and left to rubbish etc. There's no civic pride anymore in keeping up these lovely green places, or probably no money for luxuries like this!.

On 7 May 2016, Julie Greenstreet (Nee Bigwood) said:
I was born and raised here and my Father before me - and my fathers family - I lived in Lynton Road, Crouch End with the Maynard pub on one corner and Wills factory on the other - my brother was born in 1951 and me in 1955 I loved living there going to Roksley Infants Crouch End Junior School and Bishopswood which became Highgate Wood, my father went to the senior school next to Crouch End Primary - so many memories, the flower shows the fair in the park, people Grandparents neighbours - still love it and return down memory lane often- my Auntie Lil lived opposite the old cottage hospital with my Uncle Jack and Vic their son - they were bombed out in the war and several people died I believe - Uncle Vic as we call him is still alive and remembers it clearly
On 6 May 2016, Pam McEnhill (nee Danbury) said:
Thoroughly enjoyed watching all the parts of Hornsey I grew up in and still live around the area.
On 6 May 2016, Andrew Butn said:
I remember the cinema at the top of Muswell Hill (What was is called? The Ritz?). The first film I remember seeing there was Chitty Chitty Bang Bang in the early seventies.
Films back then were released several times in the years following their first release, so it probably wasn't its first outing. My Dad took me. I saw all of the Pink Panther films there through the seventies (Still a huge Peters Sellers fan). The Police Box (Tardis type) filmed at the foot of Muswell Hill is brilliant. I'm surprised BBC Worldwide haven't slapped a breach of copyright order on the films distributors.
On 6 May 2016, Sally McCornack nee Quaife said:
This brought back some lovely memories. I lived in Hornsey, just up Tottenham Lane, in Nelson Road. I went to school at Rokeskey Infant and Junior schools and the up to Muswell Hill to Creighton School. Great times.
On 6 May 2016, John Cunningham said:
Brought back many happy memories having lived in 'The Campsbourne' Boyton road in the 1940's before moving to Muswell Hill in the 1950's. Knew and visited most of the locations. Have sent links to friends and family as well as posting it on Harringay History where Campsbourne is currently being discussed by ex residents. Great archive, continue the invaluable work of preserving our history. More should be on line.
On 6 May 2016, Chris Rowe said:
Lovely work. Great to see life as it was and that, actually, things don't change that much - apart from the amount of traffic! Haven't watched it all as it seemed to only feature my beloved Crouch End at the very beginning but will certainly revisit. Thanks
On 5 May 2016, Chris Nicholson said:
Fascinating to watch the footage of the place I've lived for the past thirty years. There's a real sense of pride in making the neighbourhoods around Hornsey attractive. Some of those young trees are quite mature now, but you don't often see massed dahlias!
On 5 May 2016, David Blackman-Wells ( nee Wells ) said:
Excellent footage






On 5 May 2016, J Warham said:
A born and bred Crouch Ender, my parents moved into the area over 40 years ago, and we have some friends still alive that may even appear in the film!
On 5 May 2016, Eugene said:
Wonderful! Thanks for putting this on!
On 5 May 2016, Mike Allder said:
Totally amazing footage. I was born in the houses that were being demolished and we then lived at 7 Elgar flats, right at the time this film was shot.
I cannot be absolutely certain, but I do believe that is my Dads van outside the flats.
