This Talk will also include a short history of the synagogue itself and information regarding the timber which came from the Tottenham Home for Incurables.

This Talk is often given to visiting architectural appreciated societies by Frank.  As we are now about to celebrate our 40th Anniversary there is an opportunity for members and friends of the community to hear it.  There will be time for questions at the end of the Talk.
