    From THE NEW AVENGERS: The Midas Touch.



    Originally identified by Stephen Carter, but the exact road still unidentified.



    The flats in the background are on the Henry Dickens Court Estate, off St Ann's Road W11 - but it is hard to find anything to give an exact match to identify the junction.



    Anyone see anything I can't?

    The camera was set up in Latimer Road between Hunt Street and Stebbing Street, looking out across St Annís Road. The phone box was on a traffic island along with an underground public lavatory, both are seen in the chase sequence at the start of Robbery. The entire foreground is now part of Rifle Place.

    This is basically where two long staight roads, St Anne's Raod and Latimer Road, used to meet at an acute angle with a Ūsland in between (where the telephone box is). The flats are on St Ann's Road W11 - but Latimer Road and the island are now covered by Rifle Place.



    Looking at old maps there seem to have been a hell of a lot of old road names in that area replaced for no good reason.
