St James Road N7 was changed to Mackenzie Road, perhaps this is your street. There a quite a few web sites detailing the changes to London street names.

I've got copies of some old Ordnance survey maps and just checked and St James Road definitely became Mackenzie Road

Your 1894 Smith birth certificate falls between two censuses, 1891 and 1901. In 1891, living at No 112 St James Road was John Bunce, an unmarried cheesemonger, and in 1901 it was William Fincher and family, but it could well have been Smiths in 1894. St James Road became Mackenzie Road in 1937.

Part of McKenzie Road in 1952 (once you get rid of the message), the stretch with 112
http://maps.nls.uk/geo/explore/#zoom=19 ... rs=173&b=1

Using the " Select a map / map series" box on the left hand side, switch to the 1893-95 series, and of course it is then shown as St James's Road.
You can zoom in and out, scroll around.

Just hope there was no alteration in the numbering!
