|Woolies and The Abbey National|
I daresay that there are many sights in this selection that will stir up a few memories amongst long standing locals. Many of these were taken by my Mum, who would regularly walk around our locality snapping pictures. The lockdown has given me the opportunity to have a good trawl through the pictures that have sat sadly in their folders since she passed away in 2008. It has been longoverdue!
1 & 2. We start with a view of what is now Flower Lane Industrial Estate, and a couple of august institions of Mill Hill, one gone, the other taken over by a Spanish bank
3 & 4. The Broadway in 1987, with Sarastem Estate agents and Brookes Wine bar (Now the Bridge). We also have a view of the small parade on Hale Lane, on the day after the '87 hurricane

5 & 6. The Three Hammers before the Mitchells and Butlers redesign, with the old entrance location. Also the construction of The Sacred Heart church being rebuilt circa 1996/7
7 & 8. Someone's car had a lucky escape in Newcombe Park following the '87 Hurricane. Also a view of the Texaco garage, demolished to make way for the Titan Court flats
Lost #MillHill vol 2- #10 On Broadway Travel and Maxfields art shop. I think many miss the art shop circa ‘87 pic.twitter.com/efzfxM4tYT— Roger Tichborne/RogT #CTID 🏴☠️🇬🇧 (@Barneteye) April 14, 2020
That's all folks!
