We have been sent the details of two videos available on Youtube showing Palmers Green and Southgate in the late 50s. The two films, as you will see from the credits, are by John Chard the owner for many years of CameraCraft in Green Lanes where many of us bought our cameras and films. Sadly with the digital age now long gone.
Film 1, https://youtu.be/lGsEDvzg7xY (running time 27 mins)
Film 2, https://youtu.be/LgNZthL_9o0 (running time 4 mins) which is the continuation of the first film. For transport fans, this second film opens with shots of trolley buses in Winchmore Hill Broadway.
If anyone finds any more hidden gems on Youtube, do contact us and we’ll start a page here for them.
