    Have just watched the broacast of the Poirot mystery called "The Dream." Does anyone know the location of the "Farleys' Foods" factory shown in this episode?

    I've a vague feeling this may have been mentioned before, art-deco building isn't it?

    Most of the buildings in the older Poirot episods are art deco. This is a really stunning art deco building, used as a factory in the show. It's gorgeous.

    It's the former Hoover Factory on Western Avenue, with some matted-in towers, etc. Now a branch of Tesco.
