I remember the Hand and Flower pub, but not the old buildings to the left of it. They were presumably demolished to make way for the widening of Oakleigh Road North.

I remember the Hand and Flower. Actually used it for a couple of years. Then sadly it was knocked down and had a large Barclays Bank built on the site. Such a shame. It was a traditional old boozer.

My grandparents were licensees of the pub through the 1960's into the early 70's. At that time there was a beer garden to the left and car parking with shellfish bar to left of that presumably where buildings had been demolished

The company I worked for demolished the pub and built the Barclays building. I was involved with the air-conditioning design.
Living in Whetstone for the first 27 years of my life I remember it well - particularly the cobbled surface of the car park at the front as it was a useful short-cut to avoid the corner.

My Grandparents and then my Father ran the pub from 1948 to 1955 - There was a beer garden to the left and Curly Howes had his greengrocers storage in the big 'Hanger' at the back of the pub itself.
