NUMBER:8236
AUTHOR:Henry Howarth Bashford (1880– ?)
QUOTATION:As I came down the Highgate Hill,
  The Highgate Hill, the Highgate Hill,
As I came down the Highgate Hill 1 
  I met the sun’s bravado,
And saw below me, fold on fold,
Grey to pearl and pearl to gold,
This London like a land of old,
The land of Eldorado.
ATTRIBUTION:Romance.
 
Note 1.
Alfred Noyes: Go down to Kew in Lilac-time. [back]
