when was this ironmongers shop there, I always use this stretch of Medlicott Rd as a shortcut between Highgate Rd and Warwick Rd in the rush hours and I cant remember it at all.

The earliest reference I can find to this Hardware shop at 120 Medlicott Rd in the Kellyís Trade directories that I have is in the 1903 directory and it was then owned by Mr J.J. Pass. The next one I have is 1913 and it is owned by a Mr W.A. Howard, and the final directory I have is 1946 and it is owned by Mr F.Robinson.

The other directories I have are too early, they donít even list Medlicott Rd, I hope this has been of some help.

Thanks Phil - yup that was the one i was on about - remember in mid 70s it was not open - so was curious to find when it stopped trading
