Newsagent on Bounds Green Road

In the 1950's there was a newsagent and sweet shop on Bounds Green Road, just to the left of Queens Road and almost opposite Bounds Green School, I think it was called Bailey's. I used to go there on Saturday Night to collect the Football Paper for an elderly neighbour and buy him 2ozs of Fruit Bon Bons. He would give me one when I got back with the newspaper. Can anybody tell me if a shop still exists there. Cannot check myself as I now live in New Zealand.See More

Hello all,

I lived at 16 Queens Road from 1946 to 1958.

My Dad worked at Williams Brothers Grocers in Myddleton Road for many years.

As a child I would love to go and spend time with the station master at Bowes Park.

We used to have tea and bicuits and he was happy for me to watch him at work.

Later I would go Train Spotting on the main line at Wood Green.

We were poor but I have so many happy memories of going to Durnsford Road Swimming Pool and playing in Durnsford Park in the holidays.

Hours playing football and cricket.

Remember the street party for the Coronation in 1953.

My sister and I were dressed up as Sir Walter Raleigh and Queen Elizabeth for the Fancy Dress at the local village hall (The name escapes me now).

Leading up to Bonfire Day we would make a guy and go and collect pennies at Bounds Green Tube Station.

I now Live in New Zealand. Whoever would have thought it in the early 1950's !!!!

No Bathroom, Outside Toilet  WOW.

Roger
