reb001. Fortune Green South station played by the since demolished Bingham Road station in Croydon, Surrey. Screen capture and information by Simon Catweazle. Good work, and our thanks to him. He tells me that it is the first time he's grabbed anything!
reb001n. The location has been re-developed at ground level as a tram stop on the Croydon Tramlink system. Paul Guntrip advises that a photo of the station taken in 1983 can be viewed at http://www.disused-stations.org.uk/b/bingham_road/index18.shtml With thanks to Nick Catford for permission to use this 2005 image which is copyright Chris Fletcher.

reb002. No idea, says Simon C, but I bet Simon J will know. .. Taking up the challenge, it has a not very certain Millbank Tower look about it. SJ
reb003. Maybe Savile Row, W1? Suggests Simon, the suits possibly, but not the street.... But I know this one, the rather exclusive St Helen's Place, EC2. The bowlers are walking towards Bishopsgate. SJ
reb003n. Well, it's taken a few years to finally get there to prove, and when I did, half the street was closed by refurbishing works so this was the best I could do. SJ (Modern Photo Added: 11-07-2014)
reb004. Waterloo Station methinks. Says Simon Catweazle. Methinks he is correct, forsooth.
reb004n. Indeed so, at least something remains the same even if one cannot quite stand back far enough. (RL) (Modern Photo Added: 19-02-2014)
reb005. Tony returns on his daily commute to the office. Ulysses Road as seen from Agamemnon Road in London NW6.
reb005n. Jim Zatoff followed this scene up after watching the film and with indisputable powers of deduction shows that the location is Agamemnon Road itself. Google Image. (RL) (Modern Photo Added: 08-10-2014)
reb006. The screen house of Hancock's Landlady, Mrs. Crevatte! The top of the picture cuts off the road name but this is the corner of Ulysses Road NW6 although the building's address is Agamemnon Road.
reb006n. Jim Zatoff confirms the exact location and supports with this Google Image extract. (RL) (Modern Photo Added: 08-10-2014)
reb007. Place De La Concorde, Paris, France. Grab by Simon.
reb007n. Place de la Concorde - now. With Simon's brother Robert doing his best to be 'our Tone'. (Modern Photo Added: 02-11-2009)
reb008. Pont Alexandre III bridge, Paris. Simon got this one.
reb008n. Pont Alexandre III bridge now. With brother Bobby in there somewhere. (Modern Photo Added: 02-11-2009)
reb009. Opposite Notre Dame Cathedral, Paris. Dear Hancock doing the Cook's tour of the French capital. Hope Simon C can pop over and grab some "nows".
