Lovely photo looking out over Crouch End from 1938

Courtesy of Britain from Above comes this aerial photograph looking north over Crouch End in 1938, with the Clock Tower up in the top left:
Ashley Road and environs, Upper Holloway, 1938 - Britain from Above
Note the little puff of steam at the bottom of the photograph from a train running along what is now the London Overground train line through Crouch Hill station.

What is now Elthorne Park was all housing at the time. A reader tells me the park was created as part of a 1960s housing clearance scheme.

No sign of Doctor Who in this photo, though.
