A young taxi driver becomes the prime suspect when a young girl in his neighborhood is found murdered.

One of the screenshots for this film clearly shows "Holtham Rd". This was in St John's Wood, just east of Kilburn High Road station. It no longer exists, having been covered by the Abbey Road Estate development. It can be seen in the 1898-99 map on the following web page:

The nearest street is Bolton Street to the south. No photos I'm afraid, though I'm sure some of the streets featured must remain.

Eight O'Clock Walk - Bill Rice tells us that this is Caledonian Road at the corner of Kings Cross Road. The pub was called Scottish Stores. Further research reveals that after a spell as The Flying Scotsman, it has reverted to its original name. (SJ)
