Highgate and Hornsey’s Retail Heritage

12th March 2020 @ 7:00 pm


Delcia Keate will give a talk on the shopping parades of the former borough of Hornsey.  These were built in large numbers in London in the later Victorian and Edwardian period, providing a retail hub for London’s burgeoning suburbs. Often designed in ornate and flamboyant styles, and in many instances incorporating pubs and banks, they illustrate the eclectic architectural tastes of the period.

The talk, focusing on Archway Road, Muswell Hill and Crouch End, will look at some of the best examples of this often under-appreciated building type, and also the surprising number of surviving Victorian and Edwardian shop fronts – now quite rare both in a local and national context – which are sometimes disguised by ad-hoc signage and cladding
