Robert(?) Bennett was in the same class as I was between 1957 and 1959 at Woodhouse School. His father was the owner and used to drive in a distinctive old open topped car. Robert was also a decent footballer.

The good news is that this lovely shop front has been rescued and reopened as an excellent new cafe - much needed in Friern Barnet - called Boyden's Kitchen.

Thanks Fiona for the note about the new cafe. A small group of members and friends visited the cafe today, after a guided walk around New Southgate. They have made a good job of converting it, and the cakes were very tempting!

These premises were opened by my great grandfather in 1931, and subsequently by my grandfather, my father and brother....the upstairs was the family home of my father until they moved to Friern Close. Raymond Willett - the old car you speak of was named Bertha, and Robert is my Uncle..got a lot of memories tied up in that photo>

Kimberley, did I teach you at Dalston Mount? I'm retired from teaching and am now a sheep farmer.

Does anybody know of anyone living at 64 Friern Barnet Road in the 40's? my grandmother apparently was a domestic servant there. Any info would be great.
