Anyone know the origin of the seals on the side of the buildings at Apex corner The Apex Corner seals in Mill Hill and some pics to show where.

I actually grew up in 'Edgware' because I lived on the wrong side of the 'Railway Line' which along the M1. I remember Balfour newsagents at Apex Corner & later on I remember drinking in 'Jeramiah Bulfrogs, which I as just trying to rack my brain remembering. My dad (& later on my mum when she learnt to drive), couldn't go ANYWHERE without having to go round Apex.

There was a car dealership I think at the end of the shops. You could also get to Burnt Oak going from here.

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.
