My parent's cafe Gordons Cafe on corner of Lower Park Road, New Southgate & Station Road. I took this picture circa 1963. Would like to see any pictures of this part of New Southgate. Sadly my parents were compulsarily purchased before the planners wrecked the area (in my opinion)

The Year is incorrect. The flats in the right of the photograph were not built until the 70's.
I used to live at 56 High Road so knew the area well.

Cllr Ahmet Oykener, Enfield Council’s Cabinet Member for Housing, took the first swipe at Curtis House on the Ladderswood Estate in New Southgate, for the start of the demolition of the ageing tower block.

Curtis House is the first of several residential buildings on the estate to be demolished to make way for a huge new development.
