This is the High Road at Willesden Green. The name derives from the Anglo-Saxon Willesdune, meaning The Hill of the Spring, and a settlement bearing this name dates back to 939 AD. The Domesday Book of 1086 records it as Wellesdone. The town's motto is Laborare est orare. ("to labour is to pray").

I got this "old photo" at the Queens Park day and it shows the Willesden Green - High Road back in 1905. If you look closely at this amazing photo you will see at the left side a sign saying: Brovril Sold Here (near to a clock) and while passing by I notice that at the year 2011 the sign still there, isn't it just fascinating?
