    And as a film, it throws up some interesting questions:



    Why does the milkman put three sugars in her tea, saying "Two, isn't it?"



    Why does Terence Stamp (not included on the imdb credit list!) say "You be Yogi Bear ..." while strapping a Huckleberry Hound mask on the kid's face?



    I need to know.


    Easy - The milkman can't count and the Terence Stamp character is as thick as s**t.

    Got the DVD working. Saw the film, recognised nothing - except the Ormond Street sign, already mentioned ... too caught up in the film, which is right.



    Another comment identifies Jack Wild - part1 - 6:30.
    Right towards the end there is a brief appearance of Anna Karen who would go on to mega-stardom as Olive in "On The Buses".

    And until you see her in Poor Cow, you could be forgiven for assuming that those specs were a comedy prop. But it seems she always had them (though I remember the TV Times having some sort-of-glam pictures of her without glasses, looking less comical).



    I said to my wife "That's Anna Karen, innit?" and she said "Isn't that Leo Tolstoy novel?"

    Actually that didn't happen.

    I’m afraid it definitely is Fulham, Charleville Road W14.







    The houses at the end of the road are in the North End Road.







    The post box outside the shop is an illusion caused by the camera lens.







    If you count the groups of columns, working back from the post box and stop between 4 and 5 it brings you to here.







    Swing the view round to here and match the GPO manhole cover.

    Looking back at my previous post (no 22) just a slip-up with my vibes: The ABC in the credit sequence is the ABC Regal Fulham (not Fulham Road) in North End Road itself (no 396-400)

    Well done finding the location. How did you do it?



    Charleville Road isn't Fulham, though, it's West Kensington. Fulham is SW6.

    Is West Kensington a Borough? I would have put Charleville Road in the Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham. I think you will find that West Kensington is just an area within the Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham.



    (edit: apologies for repeating DocRobertPepper's reply, looks like we posted at the same time)

    Actually, it's in the Hammersmith part of the borough.



    W14 would never be referred to as Fulham...I used to live in St John's Wood which was originally in the Borough of Marylebone and then Westminster, but in NW8, therefore always St John's Wood.



    I now live in W6, just...therefore Hammersmith...a few streets away it's W14 and that part of W14 is West Kensington, even though it's in Hammersmith and Fulham.

    Okay dokey....thats all agreed then, its the area of West Kensington which is in the Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham......but closer to Hammersmith than Fulham, nearest tube West Kensington, and as Steve Crook says, definitely in Fulham as described by the estate agents . I used to live in Addison Road W14, described as Holland Park and in the Borough of Kensington and Chelsea but it was quite close to the Shepherds Bush roundabout, luckily my nearest tube was Holland Park so I just said Holland Park when folk asked where I lived, I suppose I could have said near Shepherds Bush if I felt like it.

    I think I can vaguely make out some "ranks" on the names on the board. This would make this a Salvation Army hall, which is more
    in keeping with the structure of the building.

    I could be totally wrong though.

    An "iron church" (or colloquially "tin tabernacle") which were produced in large numbers from 1870 onwards, into the early 20th Century. They were built with a timber frame, clad with galvanised and corrugated iron, and lined with tongue and groove boarding. Prepared as prefabricated kits, they were also exported to many countries overseas.
    Thanks to Ian Capper
    There are 125 entries at Geograph for this type of building

    "Tin tabernacle" is the common name for church and related buildings made of corrugated iron, formerly built in Great Britain and elsewhere. Sometimes known also as "iron churches", many designs were available in kit form, and could be highly decorated.

    These buildings were often established as mission halls or temporary shelter for new congregations. Very often, if a congregation prospered and was able to build an edifice of brick, stone, or some other material, the tin tabernacle would be destroyed, removed, or converted to some other purpose. Rusting makes the maintenance of tin tabernacles difficult.

    Relatively few tin tabernacles survive as places of worship today, and some that do have been made listed buildings.
