Emergency Call - Maybe the old hospital in Hammersmith, quaintly called the Charing Cross hospital, whilst the real Hammersmith Hospital was at Wormwood Scrubbs. Confused...mmmm.

Emergency Call - These location managers, don't they ever learn? Didn't they go to the pictures? Or perhaps they did, in order to steal other people's locations.

Emergency Call - Possibly the same place, dark and gloomy as it was. Atmospheric was the term used then, I believe.

Emergency Call - Yes, the same shot, same place, the evening before, or after, when Richard Widmark was topped in Night and the City. No actor, no reason for including this street in the film, but how many times has it turned up, that we've found so far? Half a dozen perhaps? Why? It's not a well known landmark. What was its attraction I wonder. Repulsion, Man Who Never Was and all the others.

emr005n. Hedley England sent this in; It's No 35 Bridge Street, Walton on Thames, opposite The Bear pub. The shops have recently been rebuilt, to original design, and No 35 was shut, so I could not get a shot through the window.

Emergency Call - Nor this one.
Hedley England says; Shepperton. This shop is at the entrance to Church Square, off Church Street Shepperton. Unchanged. It was also used as a location for a late 1950's episode of Edgar Wallace.
