I Know Where I'm Going - A school, London? Home Counties? This was Harrow County School for Girls in Lowlands Road Harrow. I went to the Boys County School in the 1950's which was about half a mile away. Dave Buckley supplied this info and says if you call up Google Earth and look along Lowlands Road to the picture headed Tyburn Lane/Grove Hill/Lowlands Road, (and pan right) the distinct pointed arched entrance can be made out.

I Know Where I'm Going - One of the girls hitching a ride on a milk float. With an HG on her bosom pocket. It probably isn't politically correct these days to say breast. Harrow Gels.

I Know Where I'm Going - And would you believe, John Tunstall was the assistant director. There but for a typo...and, perhaps fittingly, painted on the side of a milk cart.

I Know Where I'm Going - Coo, what a beautiful factory. Bet Poirot would know where it is, or was. The Powell and Pressburger web site states . . . the front of Denham Studio. And this is a matted shot. Dave Buckley

I Know Where I'm Going - Another addition from Keith. Joan Webster (Wendy Hiller) & Torquil MacNeil (Roger Livesey) use the phonebox to book rooms at the Western Isles hotel in Tobermory on the Isle of Mull (the hotel is still there: I stayed last year). They had difficulty using the phone due to the noise from a waterfall to the rear of the phonebox.
