Originally known as Londoners’ Street, Highgate was once very popular with Merchants from London who regularly attended the fairs as far back as 1417.
Note in the distance on the left hand side of the photograph is a water pump. In 1881, there were about 40 public pumps in use, they eventually became obsolete when the local Waterworks began operations. On the same side there is the George and Dragon Public House, which is now known as the Monks Walk.
