Apex Corner

Apex Corner c1955, Mill Hill
Enlarge photo |  More about this photo

The roundabout; the sweet shop - one of my first jobs. Before the M1 was built my friends grandparents lived in an apartment and we used to walk from Edgware to here, going past the Cripplidge (not sure of spelling) and the garden plots. There was a car dealership I think at the end of the shops. You could also get to Burnt Oak going from here.

“New” Bus Station

Station Road c1968, Mill Hill

I'm thinking this photo is from around 1968. The new bus station is to the right. That was built beneath the M1 motorway bridge and it and is clearly finished in the shot (the final southern extention of the M1 was finished late 60s. I recall walking over Lilly Lane footbridge - a few hundred yards from this pic - circa 68 and seeing nothing but mud and stranded machinery alongside the railway.) I remember Station Road, before and after the motorway. It was very quaint and countrified before. The massive development was a shocking change (Opposite Station Road was a second parade of shops that came off the main Broadway - Callaces, the Bicycle Repair place was one - but all were demolished to make way for the bridge), but it did stop the regular flooding that used to take place under the railway, and Mill Hill was still a lovely town to grow up in.
