This is 20 Collamore Avenue, Earlsfield, SW18 spotted by Alan F and taken by SJ (10/8/15). Same door, same colour: impressive. SJ

Quite a distinctive corner... 2018 update: Rebecca D'Monte remembers the shop being Shillings, a chemist and watched the filming from her piano teacher's house.

Adrian Grepnold discovered this as All Farthing Lane, London SW18 and he was right as usual. SJ.

A corner.

image no 9

All Farthing Lane and Barmouth Road, no longer a junction for road traffic. SJ/AG.

Same corner.

Killarney Road and Barmouth Road. AG/SJ.

And again. Can the roadsign be read?

image no 11

Much the same as anbs010. SJ/AG.

Opposite anbs007.

image no 12

More centre of town. Labour Exchange?

image no 13

Kingwood Road SW6, at the junction with Wyfold Road. Too late to catch the original building, but not by much. The original is still visible on Bing Maps aerial pictures. Alan Field

Bluey Zatoff sends this additional screen grab of Jack Shepherd in Branksea Street off Fulham Palace Road. (RL)

image no 14

Bluey sends this Google Image from behind where Jack was standing to support, saying, that Branksea Street has now been virtually been absorbed into a local school. The wall down the righthand side of the pathway is that to the right of Jack in the still. (RL)

Definitely central but could be anywhere.

image no 15

It could be anywhere but actually it is 33 Westbourne Terrace, London W2 although this facade is on Craven Road. (RL)

An underpass. Queen Caroline Street, leading up to The Broadway, Hammersmith?

image no 16

Yes, there it is with new lights and new coat of paint. 12/07/11. SJ. John Orr adds that this had disappeared by 2012 so we got there just in time. (SJ)

Westway or Hammersmith flyover? I can confirm that this is Hammersmith flyover, as you said. This scene was filmed at 26 Fulham Palace Road, W6 9PH. In Google Maps street view option "...chand Clothing" at number 28 is now "Spanish Tapas Bar", "Mr John" at number 26 is now an empty shop, and "Tip Top" at number 24 is now "El Paso Mexicana". Greg doing some serious sleuthing, excellent work, well done. Adrian Grepnold confirms that this is Hammersmith Flyover. Top end of Fulham Palace Road. The parade of shops is still there but no other buildings.

Now. SJ

Now this is familiar territory, and it's still standing unlike the part of the street in The Leather Boys. Seriously well sleuthed. Well done, Simon. JT.

Looking much the same. SJ.

Yes it's Southolm Street. London SW11.

And panning left. SJ.

A distinctive hue of blue..."The Ship pub, Jews Row, Wandsworth is, in fact, just a few streets away from Smuggler's Way (anbs004), which makes sense." This info comes from Nick Cooper who is writing a book on London Underground appearances in film and tv to follow up Underground during the War - now available!

Nick has sent in this Google Image extract to support his identification whilst he continues with his next book. (RL)
