Is Palmers Green typically British?
This is the question you might ask if you have in mind what Auntie Cath did when she took photos of PG in order to show French pupils in her school (check here). The date is yet unknown, but probably in the 80s. The interest of this initiative for us is that the views refer to a PG which has now changed somewhat, and so the photos look back on a time which doesn't exist in quite the same way! Thanks to Noel for having unearthed them.
A funny DR view seen from the grass roots!
A "typical" English pub... Compare with today:
It seems the road passes right in front now!
Two views of Green Lanes (An English street, some shops) Would be nice to have a picture of today from the same angle. Maybe by going on Google maps: yes, here we go, you can still see the old clock:
and below it's from "Chemistry" to "coffee culture": what's the best? (is there any real change??)
Ah, a very "typical " object, isn't it? No doubt some of you know where this pillar-box is/was situated (and do blog-visitors recognize the car? )
Perhaps she would have insisted on the letter-box, and on the red BR sign?
This would have been for "Zebra crossing", don't you think? And the one below, any idea? How would it have been included in the class?
Finally, a famous British "Black taxi"! The car next to it being a red version of Monsieur Père's green "Iggy" Morris 1100 (see here)
I'm adding this view of perhaps a neighbouring street which Noel sent me also some time ago: does somebody know which street it is?
