"My paternal grandparents lived at No 51 Markfield Road, described on the map as 'artisans cottages'. This row of six houses were built by the Midland Railway Company c1894 and I think were demolished around the mid 1960s. My grandfather worked for the Great Eastern Railway and was a Signalman at Tottenham South Junction (demolished 1969) from 1899 until about 1920. My father also spent a period there, from 1942-1962, firstly under the London & North Eastern Railway and then British Railways from 1948. The signal box was situated very near to where the Moselle entered the Lea. Here is a photo of my father (b1905) and his elder sister (b1900) standing outside No. 51 Markfield Road c1908."
