    Other scenes in the film feature Putney and Wimbledon Common so I imagine these could be somewhere in south-west London, but I could obviously be way off.

    Picture one reminds me of Edge Hill in Wimbledon, it is quite a steep road like that and as you go down there is a very large Catholic Church on the left called the Sacred Heart, just a thought. The Wimbledon area is a good bet.

    Christoph, many thanks for your suggestion but it didn't pan out.

    SainT, many thanks, once again, for finding what looks like one of the hundreds of very anonymous streets in London. How do you do it?

    Thanks again.

    Thank you for your kind words regarding my location work, Christopher.
    I have some disorder similar with the disorder of the character Adrian Monk.
    In my case it is between PTSD and dyslexia.
    I'm born with this disorder, but I don't know the exact name.


    I think that I found the location of the remaining two pictures.

    1st picture:
    Spencer Hill, Wimbledon... looking east/southeast towards Worple Road.

    2nd picture:
    1 Spencer Hill, Wimbledon, SW19 4NZ (next to the Church of St. John the Baptist).

    I was on the right track, Spencer Hill is parallel with Edge Hill but a few streets along, they are all running down that steep hill towards Worple Road, but well done to Greg ( saintT) for finding the exact location of those, very good work.

    Christoph you beat me to the punch for I too was going to mention the fact that you were only a street or two when you guessed Edge Hill: I think you obviously 'felt' is was in that area.

    And Greg, excellent work, once again.

    Many thanks.
