  • Law and Disorder (1958)

    This looks like a street which could have survived:-


    With two nice unreadable street signs.

    And the houses across the street.

    Very distinctive building at the end of the street. I spent ages searching the south coast in vain for the location of the seaside 'retirement' location only to read in the forum that it was actually in Wales!!

      I'm pretty certain that this scene is in London and it takes place before the retirement to Wales.

        Hi Chris. To the right of the lamp post-is that a Watney's pub?

      Lots of houses like this around Camden Town. All very posh now, but didn't used to be. That's where my Google-map-strolling has been today...

        The DJJ registration number on the taxi is no help either. Its a London (anywhere) code. Even if the scene is out of the area (looks like clean air to me!) the number plate would have been registered by the manufacturer rather than a private saloon which would have been registered locally by the local dealer dealer.

          Well here's a view in the opposite direction and it looks like another very blurry pub.

          So I imagine that that's a pub in the distance, as mentioned by Alan, and certainly a pub by the lamp post, as mentioned by Clive T, but I have no idea of the brewer involved. I sort of feel that this is N1 or N7 but I could be way off.

            I have similar thoughts. Maybe near Parkway or Mornington Crescent ?

              Yes, I'll gladly throw NW1 and NW5 into the mix.

                Could be very wrong but the houses look all too clean and tidy for Kentish Town/Camden Town in the late 1950s. That building at the top of the street in the first grab is the best clue

                  What is the policeman doing left of frame in picture 1? It's partially obscured by the taxi mirror but could he be putting up a notice? He is behind a railing - might that be the front of a police station? I'm posing a lot of questions but unfortunately not providing answers to them!

                    Yes Tavistock the houses do look a bit on the clean side but they do look like the type of 'housing stock' you find in those areas: this clearly isn't, for example, Stepney. Alan, I can't guess as to what the policeman could be doing but I will add, and this is worth basically nothing, that a double decker bus passes in front of the building in the distance.

                      It's Limerston Street near Gertrude Street SW10.

                        sandgrounder - that's very well done, excellent work. How did you do it?

                          Thank Christopher. I was drawn at first to look around your suggestion of NW1 & NW5. Then I noticed the smaller terraced houses leading to the pub in the distance and decided to check the Chelsea Kings road area. Hey Presto! there it was.

                          I'd typed in Chelsea to my Google map but it had all locked up and wouldn't go to streetview. Well done Sandgrounder. London is a beatiful city in parts and there is enough of it to provide hours of fun for a location spotter .
                          This seems to be as close as I can get to the view.
