Philbeach Gardens Resident (Al Stewart)
Al Stewart, who had huts in the 70s with the sings ’Year of the Cat’ and ’On The Borders’, lived in Philbeach Gdns for a while and referenced Earl’s Court in a couple of his songs.
I lived in Philbeach Gardens from a child until my late teens. For a few years, on one evening in the midst of Summer, you could hear Al Stewart songs ringing out across Philbeach Gardens, particularly from his album ’Time Passages". I don’t think Al was living there at the time but perhaps he came back to see some pals. Or perhaps the broadcasters were just his fans,like me.
Either way, it was a wonderful treat to hear!

Upper Holloway

Upper Holloway is a district in the London Borough of Islington centred on the upper part of Holloway Road.

Upper Holloway was one of several hamlets within the ancient parish of St Mary Islington.

The area around Hornsey Road was traditionally known as Tollington and this name was used in the Domesday Book.

The part of the Great North Road through north of the parish of Islington was known as the Holloway Road by 1307, a name later applied to the communities that formed along it.

The Church of St John Upper Holloway was built because the population of the parish was increasing. It was consecrated in 1828 and in 1830 a new ecclesiastical parish was created.

Upper Holloway station opened in 1868 and the classic late Victorian comic novel Diary of a Nobody is set here.
