Date With a Dream - As above, the perspective is a trifle strange, and the buildings a little grey Harrowby St with Edgware Road by the traffic lights to right and left and Burwood Place beyond the lights. ~ Pat Loobey

dd006n. On the extreme left are two windows, the only building left from the 50's. The trees are still there as well so I agree with Pat Loobey on this one, obviously he remembers it from back in the day. Aidan McManus again.
