ABOUT  A website dedicated to the history of Summerhill Road Tottenham that includes memories and photographs from residents both past and present.
The website has since developed into a Local History for Tottenham in general and includes many fascinating history snippets and further historic photographs and social history from Tottenham's past.

 

ADVERTISEMENT HACKNEY & KINGSLAND GAZETTE - MAY 1890
 The following advertisement was published in the Hackney and Kingsland Gazette in May 1890 for a property at Shakespeare Villas. Tottenham. I think you will agree that both the description of the general area and details of the property itself would satisfy the most exacting scrutiny by any estate agents operating today.
