High Road, New Southgate

At this time the High Road was still a main through route, and busy shopping centre, but was already declining, as the various for sale signs indicate. The gas holder, which still exists, can be seen in the background.

I grew up in the Devonshire Café, 116 High Road. The proprietor was my grandmother Mrs T. E. Spurrier. She had seven children. All bar one survived infancy. Six married so there were six children-in-law. There were 18 of us grand-children and in the early fifties we all lived within 200 yards of the café.
