The pub you can see in this picture was called The Northern Star. I met my husband in this pub. We were introduced by a mutual friend named Derek Spurrier. We were married in the Baptist Chapel just a bit further up this road. We have been married 45 years this year. I used to live in Alexandra Road just off the High road, in the house my dad was born. They lived there until the area was redeveloped. They then moved to Palmers Road.

I am researching my family tree, and particularly wanted to find out more about number 45 High Road New Southgate. We think my grandfather's family lived there in 1906, and my grandfather's 2 year old brother was knocked down and killed by a horse and cart in the street outside. I wonder if anyone can throw any light on the social history of this road at that time?

on June 17th there will be an reunion of lots of people that lived in the New Southgate area - quite a few lived in or around the High Road. The reunion is for Garfield School and all the local people that lived around there. There are some books with photos etc also for sale. On the day you will meet people from the 40s and 50s till now - very good day and it's free! The reunion is held in the old Conservative Club in the High Road. My no is 01782 832 535
