Laburnum Grove - The bus from Laburnum Grove brings Elsie and her family to Highgate station. Ray tells us that this is not the Highgate of today, this is what we know as Archway station. The station stands at the corner of Junction Road and Highgate Hill N19 and was renamed in July 1939. Double shadows, flat looking fascia . . . this has the appearance of a very accurate set.
