te014n. By Peter who adds, "This is taken facing south from the car park. Weird! I worked on the 9th floor of a office block in Wood Green when the famous Palace fire started and could not be bothered to go the short distance home and get my camera. We watched the fire start and spent our two hours overtime watching it spread. Those were the days".

Train of Events - Passing train carriages leave us with this scene of tracks and the rear of houses reminding us that it is the railway and an eventual tragedy that binds the four stories. James Churcher advises that this was shot from the former GWR station at Westbourne Park and Paul Robinson adds that the view is looking away from Paddington. In the distance stands Portobello Bridge and to the right, the rear of properties on Southam Street. The area was seen in 'Col cuore in gola', 'The 14', 'Bitter Harvest' and 'Bedazzled'.
