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.
