Yesterday, I took a trip up to breezy north London to see the mighty Dulwich Hamlet FC secure a point against Enfield Town.
I took time out to wander around the town after the game and grabbed this small collection of photos:
The very red stairway up to the Enfield platform at Seven Sisters.
The enticing-sounding “Krayzee Burger & Chicken Company.”
If you need a bed in north London, Vic Smith is yer man.
Shopping trolley and wood.
Former Enfield Electricity Works, now Grade II listed.
Built in 1906 and constructed from red brick with extensive buff terra cotta dressings and a slate roof, the building has been lying empty for years.
Danger of death.
Home made sign.
Playing fields adjacent to Enfield Town’s stadium.
This looks like a contestant from Robot Wars.
The New River.
Old water pump detail.
Shop window turtle.
They like to shop early in Enfield. Or very late.
Splendid late Victorian bank architecture.
This Barclays Bank branch was the first place in the world to have an ATM or cash machine. It was officially opened in June 1967 by Reg Varney, a television actor and personality most famous for his lead role in the comedy series On the Buses. This historical event was marked by a silver plaque on the wall of the bank, which has since been vandalised/removed and replaced with an English Heritage Blue plaque. Read more here.
Grade II listed Old Vestry building, Enfield.
A barrel half way up a house with a (non working) clock.
Another non working clock.
Church School of Industry.
Groovy 1970s typeface.
Humongous, town-dwarfing modern development by the station.
