Enormous changes in the social demographic over a relatively short period of time... except at the Bingo Hall, of course. I reckon that picture of the Bingo punters was taken at Beacon only last week.
Very scary that I've just tried to think of anyone of the many people I knew that worked at Smith's Industries who's still alive. I don't think any are.
The situation that the western car park of Brent Cross shopping centre, for which Hendon dog track was demolished and concreted over, now gets more use than the piece of **** standing three or four miles due south, on the site of the Olympic Stadium, isn't all that pleasing.

Happy

Many thanks for posting link - brings back many memories from my youth.

I remember Happy really well, as will many older supporters. He was one of the characters in this world and was known to just about everyone who lived in central Hendon. For many years he had a cobblers shop on Church Rd and then subsequently worked for the Council. He was Hendon's mascot and for big occassions always wore his green and white suit. His favourite phrase was "wear your colours". For a number of years his association with Hendon FC was commemerated in the The Greyhound pub (Greyhound Hill) where "Happy's Bar" was full of memorabelia.

One thing I always remember is the betting system he used - he was always down the bookies. His system was to bet on all horses that started with the letter 'O'. Don't think it worked.

Happy (sic) memories.

I have checked the whole Flickr photos. Before Instagram, Flickr was the high resolution photo selling and sharing platform as https://www.essayservicesreviewsclub.com/papersowl-com-review/ mentioned about some more site where we can get download free photos.

There’s a lovely story that in the mid 1970s, someone wrote to him from, I think Africa or Asia, and addressed it to HAPPY, HENDON, and it arrived. The story was in the Hendon Times and when he was next at Claremont Road he proudly showed off the envelope.
