Connecting Crouch End and Hornsey with news, views and information

A few weeks ago I posted a quiz about an acorn - a thumbnail and a link to the quiz have been in  the panel on the right. This has proved difficult - 27 of us have tried it and the percentage of correct answers are all in single figures. Maybe if it hadn't been pointed out to me I'd have got it wrong as well - or maybe formed a lucky guess. If you haven't tried it yet the quiz is here

If you just want to know the answers then read on.

This foundation stone (sorry about the quality of the photo) is on your right as you go in through the revolving doors of Hornsey Town Hall. The acorn is used as a punctuation mark by Reginald Uhren (the man called Reg!) and symbolises the history of the area as  a hunting ground for the rich and clerical (the Bishops of London) in the forests round about. Further symbolism of the forests can be seen on the wrought iron gates in the form of hounds, leaves, deer and so on. Jo Angell has taken these pictures.

The Stoke Newington Ship Canal has been documented by local historians Price and Hayman. The Salvation Army Citadel and The Clock Tower are both real places with foundation stones of their own.
