Norman Manley airport, Kingston, now altered.

Continuity confusion. Bond has been driven the wrong direction (east) which would take him back towards the airport. This pull-off is just off the Palisadoes Main Road, west of the airport.

This is by ruins, called Rocky Fort. Info, with thanks, from "Doctor" who served me lunch at Morgan's Harbour. That's looking north across to Kingston. SJ.

Looking south over the sea.

Note the mounds, and Lime Cay on the horizon, which I think is just caught in the film. SJ.

Could this be "Doc"? Here he is in 2010. You have my Reelstreets card, Doctor. Get in touch. Is that you in the then, or do you appear in the night scene following? SJ... This was followed up by famous Bond researcher Steve Oxenrider who gave Wilfred "Doc" a call and now we know, he appears in the night scene, and is still hoping to spot himself. Thanks for the info, Steve.

Not straightforward to get to. SJ.

When I had the Soldiers Shop in Lambeth, and before that managed the shop Tradition, in London's Piccadilly, we often used to supply Berman's and Nathans, theatrical costumiers with uniforms, weapons and equipment. Ms Andress' belt is a standard British army WWII belt, blancoed white. I kept it from the Tradition stock and it is now on display in my collection. John Tunstill.

Now with vegetation loss on the headland, possibly Hurricane Gilbert in 1988. SJ.

But that doesn't deter the locals and location hunters.

Not a particularly aesthetic addition, the man-made channel. SJ.

Similar falls but these are the bigger and touristy Dunn's River Falls to the east.
