In 1901 this large house was built on land virtually on the top of the short railway tunnel. To the left can be seen the backs of houses in Addison Road. About 1918 it ceased to be privately occupied and after that was used as offices by various Government departments. Finally it was found to be too small so a new office was built behind it and the house was demolished in early 1965. Photographed March, 1953. CORRECTION: This house was much older than I had said. I discovered my mistake when studying a map of 1892, which clearly showed it. In fact its original name was The Lawn and it was built during the 1860s. It was renamed Totteridge after a change of ownership in 1901. The rest of the caption is correct
