I visited my grandmother who lived on Tunis Road from Canada in approximately 1967-68. I remember the Rag and Bone man who came down the road with a horse and milk delivered to the door with cream on the top. I also remember having to use an outhouse in the back of the row house. No indoor plumbing. We had to have a bath in a big metal tub (like a horse trough) in the middle of the kitchen filled with boiled water on the stove. Very different from Canada. My moms madin name was Hardcastle. Interesting to see the maps. Google maps also brings the world closer.

I lived at Queensbury Road, Kingsbury during World War II and used to play regularly along the edge of the Welsh Harp. About halfway along Cool Oak Lane on the south side was a pond we used to call Froggy Pond. It was the only place I ever saw a water scorpion, Nepa cinerea.
At the end of the war, all the street air raid shelters were knocked down and the rubble was piled up on the ground south of the Cool Oak Lane bridge, on the Hendon side. I remember that this heap of rubble became infested with rats and I used to watch them from the bridge. I was told that an old house on the south side of Cool Oak Lane (Woodfield House?) was once owned by the wife of Horatio Nelson. I think it later became the nurseries for plants grown for the Hendon parks.

Street violence: ’For them, using a knife may seem rational’
Behind many recent murders in London are young men who are traumatised and excludedOn the afternoon of 18 April 2016, a Monday, Lewis Elwin was dropped off by a relative in Moyser Road, a residential street in Tooting, south London.The 20-year-olds’ mother and five older siblings were worried about him: they feared he was mixing with the wrong crowd, and doing so at a time when tit-for-tat violence among youth gangs was costing lives.Some can’t even cross the road without putting themselves into a dangerous locationI was sent to a school for bad kids. I had a lot of free time. I got sucked into the group lifestyle, the street lifestyleHe’s a bright boy, but he’s gullible, and he wants to be liked, he wants to be loved Continue reading...

John Rocque Map of Wembley, Kingsbury, Willesden and Harlesden (1762)
John Rocque (c. 1709–1762) was a surveyor, cartographer, engraver, map-seller and the son of Huguenot émigrés. Roque is now mainly remembered for his maps of London. This map dates from the second edition produced in 1762. London and his other maps brought him an appointment as cartographer to the Prince of Wales in 1751. His widow continued the business after his death. The map covers an area from Harrow in the northwest to Harlesden in the southeast.
