About Holloway N7

His home was in the Holloway region north of London … a tract of suburban Sahara, where tiles and bricks were burnt, bones were boiled, carpets were beat, rubbish was shot, dogs were fought, and dust was heaped by contractors ? ?Our Mutual Friend?, Charles Dickens (1865) An intensely developed grimy slice of inner suburbia caught between fashionable Islington and wealthy Highgate and known mostly for its railway lines and congested roads, Holloway was built on land owned around the time of the Norman Conquest by the Dean of St Paul’s, which later passed to the St John ‘s Priory and St Mary’s Nunnery in Clerkenwell. The name first appeared in the fifteenth century in reference to the muddy hollow way, now Holloway Road, the main route through the area. Holloway grew in the mid nineteenth century following the arrival of the railways, when streets of basic brick houses were built for manual workers. Further north, by the foothills of Highgate Hill and Crouch Hill, more ambitious properties, decorated with perfunctory classical embellishments, were erected on the featureless fields for the clerical classes working in the City, who traveled there on the new railways and omnibuses, as epitomized by Charles Pooter, the hero of George and Weedon Grossmith’s Diary of a Nobody of 1888. Due to its lack of importance, Holloway escaped severe destruction during the Second World War and has barely changed in appearance since, save for the erection of a number of council estates around the Nag’s Head junction. Lower Holloway Holloway Road, Lower Holloway – A relentlessly traffic-choked route sloping upwards from Highbury Corner to Archway past second-hand furniture stores, corroded domes, decaying stone work, cheap cafes, the bedraggled buildings of the University of North London and the shops around the Nag?s Head junction, Holloway Road is part of the ancient route north (now the A1) and in medieval times was made impassable in rain by the hooves of animals herded down the hill from the fields of Middlesex to the Smithfield slaughterhouses, giving rise to the name Hohl Weg, from which comes Holloway. Joe Meek?s studio, no 304, Lower Holloway ? In a small cramped studio converted from two bedrooms above what is now a cycle store, Joe Meek, Britain?s first independent record producer, cut a number of the most successful hits of the early 1960s, including Johnny Leyton?s eerie ?Johnny remember me? and the Tornados? instrumental ?Telstar?, a tribute to satellite of the same name, which became the first track by a British group to top the US charts. Islington Library, Holloway Road, Lower Holloway ? the playwright Joe Orton and his lover Kenneth Halliwell stole 72 books, mainly from this branch, in the late 1950s and early 1960s, pasting their own illustrations over the books? photos for humorous effect. After placing the books back on the shelves they stood around the library waiting for unsuspecting users to read their handiwork. They were eventually caught and jailed; the library keeps some of the defaced books in its archive.
