Beauty in the Borough

A 20 minute amateur film, without sound, from 1959 about floral colour in Haringey.  It’s as interesting for the people, buildings and vehicles as it for the abundance of flowers.

The film includes Crouch End, Muswell Hill and Hornsey Village, and has been digitised by London Screen Archives. You can find a description with a detailed list of the streets which were filmed on the London Screen Archives website.
