Highgate Hill

Torbreck Demolished

Tapestry of the Original TorbreckThis one caught my eye last time I was in the lobby at Torbreck. Hung proudly for the residents and visitors to enjoy, the inset writing reads “Tapestry of  original “Torbreck” 182 Dornoch Terrace, Highgate Hill built in 1875 demolished in 1958. Tapestry by Miss Julie Moynihan, long time resident of Torbreck. Donated 2009.” Not many locals can remember what was there before the first ever high-rise was built but it’s obviously dear memory to Julie.

Do you have pieces of Art showing a local landmark?
