Historic Maps of Crouch End and the local area.

I was born in 1946 and attended Rokesley Infants school from 1951 to 1953. We baby boomers were too many for the main school and in 1952 my class was in a private house just up the road from the school. We had to march down for lunch. I really enjoyed my time there and was very upset when we moved to Clapham in South London. My mum worked part time at the Beales Bakery and my dad was a Policeman. ...see more

So lovely to find this beautiful photograph and the memories from others. I went to Crouch End High School in Shepherds Hill in the early 1970's. I also have treasured memories of Queens Wood and Alexandra Palace. The view from the school was really something. I lived in Hornsey at that time so have many memories from the whole area. I did return some years ago and walked through Queens Wood. So much changes with time!
