dufr003. 'Your Gracie' (Erna May), Duffer's prostitute friend, makes her way to a launderette. David Neicho advises that this is Notting Hill Gate between
Clanricarde Gardens and Linden Gardens in London W2.
dufr004. Gracie turns as Duffer appears at the window. Looking out onto Notting Hill Gate identified by David.
dufr005. A tilt shot starts on, what appears to be, a derelict building. We are indebted to David Neicho who identifies the location as the corner of Burlington Road and Shrewsbury Road in London W2.
dufr005n. The building has long gone and it would be pointless taking a shot of thin air, so here's a lower shot of the same place now. (PW) (Modern Photo Added: 11-02-2014)
dufr006. The camera moves down to show the building's entrance before panning left. Facing Burlington Road from Shrewsbury Road. Located by David Neicho.
dufr006n. The same location 40 years on. (PW) (Modern Photo Added: 11-02-2014)
dufr007. A woman crosses the street as the camera pans. David Neicho advises that this is Shrewsbury Road W2 with Talbot Road in the left background and Burlington Road to the right.
dufr008. The shot settles on Duffer as he appears around the corner. Shrewsbury Road facing St Stephen's Gardens in W2 which, around the corner, is also where scenes from 'Alfie (1966) were shot. Location identified by David Neicho . . .

dufr010. I did fear that this, along with many of the other locations featured in this film, had long since disappeared. However, David Neicho advises that this is the corner of Westbourne Park Road looking into Shrewsbury Road to the left. The public house still stands as The Oak.
