Patrick Livingstone, surely?
Upper Street was still there in the 90's - I used to eat in a cracking Chinese restaurant (Youngs, I think) in Upper Street back then. A 2001 copy of the A-Z shows Upper Street as still being there (a fairly major thoroughfare, in fact). A quick Google finds a branch of Sainsbury's at No. 317 - 318 and also Upper Cut Hair and Beauty Salon at No. 318.
I haven't actually seen any of these with my own eyes.
