It is then certain that our paths must have crossed at some point.Tottenham home game/pool in Crooked Billet/Stow/Curry was a pretty regular Saturday for me throughout the 80s!!Used to play pool in the Crooked Billet, before and after each meet.
Its a light cake ,like a maderia made with pink icing.Originally made in the Quakers house in Tottenham High road for as a treat for the poor kids of the area.The icing was coloured and flavoured from beries off a tree in the garden of the Quaker house.I will look it up and find out exactly what berries they are.What the fuckety fuck is Tottenham Cake?
I can see this place being popular with hipsters (who are unfortunately starting to seep into North Tottenham now as well as South) as well as with Spurs fans, so hopefully they will get enough custom on non-match days to survive and prosper.
I think when you remember an area when it was a bit rough around the edges,you don't like the hipster incursion.When you don't they are tolerable.I don't like thenm in Shoreditch either,as i remember when it wasn't like it is now.I'm indifferent to them being in Shoreditch but I don't want them in Tottenham. If they're here anyway then I'm glad for the pie shop to have their custom though.
Yeah me too. Lived in Shoreditch in the early 90's, most people who swan around there now would have been stabbed in minutes. Halcyon daysI think when you remember an area when it was a bit rough around the edges,you don't like the hipster incursion.When you don't they are tolerable.I don't like thenm in Shoreditch either,as i remember when it wasn't like it is now.
