Edmonton Military Hospital, now North Middlesex Hospital
The Edmonton Union Infirmary (ie the workhouse hospital) opened in 1910 and was used by the Army during the First War; patients were moved into the main workhouse buildings. Large huts were erected in the grounds and the bed capacity rose to over 1,000. Records show the efforts made to look after and feed such numbers; the kitchens had a sausage machine capable of making up to 1,000 sausages a day. the diet may have been a little repetitive! After the First War it returned to civilian use…

St Alphege's Church, Edmonton N9. This simple Anglican Church was consecrated in 1958 and I was a choir boy there from 64-67, We practised with the organist, Bill Shipman in the rooms in the foreground. Earned 2/6d per wedding, of which there were 5 or more on a summer Saturday. That was serious money to a 12 year old!
