Bernie & Mike Winters lived here

The early years of comedy legends Mike and Bernie Winters.

Location: Highbury Mansions, Upper Street, Islington, N1 2XF

Description: Comedy duo Mike and Bernie Winters spent their early years here in a 1st floor flat.

Mike had been born in Tottenham in 1930 and aged two they moved here to Islington where his younger brother Bernie was born in the Salvation Army Maternity Hopsital near Old Street on 6th September 1933.

Bernie weighed 14 pounds when born and was nicknamed 'Primo' by nurses after Primo Carnera, then the world heavyweight boxing champion.

As a toddler Bernie had a tricycle which he used so noisily the family were asked to leave! And they duly moved back to Tottenham when he aged 3.
