fahr001. The firemen leave the station to go book burning. The station is a store in the grounds of Pinewood Studios, Iver Heath.
fahr002. A subversive book reader (Jeremy Spenser) eludes capture on The Alton Estate situated in Roehampton, southwest London.
fahr002n. The same, rather messier, location taken by Mark O'Neill. (Modern Photo Added: 08-05-2013)
fahr003. The firemen arrive on Alton Estate in Roehampton SW15 which was built in the late 50's to mid 60's.
fahr003n. Quite tricky to tell the blocks apart. This is Denmead House, grade II* listed. SJ (Modern Photo Added: 22-08-2016)
fahr004. The Captain (Cyril Cusack) waits whilst Montag (Oskar Werner) leads the firemen onto Alton Estate. The cupola of the Lulham Building of Roehampton University can been seen through the trees behind the 'fire engine'.
fahr004n. Not a lot can be seen through the trees at all. SJ (Modern Photo Added: 22-08-2016)
fahr005. Dunbridge House on Highcliffe Drive on the Alton Estate. The background blocks of flats are on Sherfield Gardens.

fahr006. The firemen return to the station in Pinewood Studios.
fahr007. Establishing shot of the SAFEGE (Société Anonyme Française d'Etude de Gestion et d'Entreprises) Monorail which features prominently in the film. Built in 1959 the infrastructure was dismantled around 1970. The vehicle still exists albeit in a derelict and vandalised state.
fahr007n. Probably one of the most obscure pictures on Reel Streets. The only remaining part of the screen shot is the now disused telegraph pole. Image copyright Google Maps. (Modern Photo Added: 08-04-2012)
fahr008. Montag and Clarisse (Julie Christie) alight from the Monorail. The line was 1.4km long and ran on ground owned by construction company Baudin Châteauneuf in Chateauneuf-sur-Loire.
farh008n. The Monorail followed a railway line into the premises of Baudin Châteauneuf alongside Rue de la Cigale. Factory expansion has obliterated much of the evidence. Image copyright Google Maps. (Modern Photo Added: 08-04-2012)
fahr008a. A proving shot for the location in image fahr008. Note the style of the telegraph poles alongside the old railway line.
fahr008an. Close up of telegraph pole in shot fahr008n. This is the second pole from the left in image fahr008a, just next to the Monorail support. Image copyright Google Maps. (Modern Photo Added: 08-04-2012)
fahr009. Montag and Clarrise walk from the Monorail stop to their homes.
fahr009n. The same location next to a Level Crossing just off Rue de Grands Billions in Chateauneuf sur Loire. Image is copyright Google Maps. (Modern Photo Added: 08-04-2012)
