Need to submit this picture as part of the North Circular Area Action Plan consultation process. This is what we want, proper houses, trees, pavements, nice lamp posts....
A very nice old photo, but looking at the houses, they look more like our Victorian - Edwardian terraced, plus this is a road with no side roads and the unfamiluar geography, I am wondering where on the Bowes Road this is suposed to have been taken? I know the north side of Bowes road, Ritz parade, was open land and fields before New Southgate was developed ,but looking at this picture I am not sure this is our Bowes road, would be interested to find out. There looks to be a church at the top of the road?
I agree it would be a nice vision for the NCAAP, not sure about the gas lamp!
I'm guessing that it's heading towards the Green Lanes junction and the houses are those on the south side. I could be wrong but some of the houses there today look very similar.
Oh, and the church possibly the old Trinity at Bowes
Yes, it looked much nicer than it does now.
How it looks today!
This is definitely taken from here: http://goo.gl/maps/ubVd6
It's the Arnos Grove end of Bowes Road as far as I can make out.
Here are the two side by side the roof line is the same and the lozenge shapes below the upstairs bay window can still be seen:
