bluic012. A nice clean still of Harry's Jaquar driving away from the camera. Piccadilly Circus looking up Shaftesbury Avenue, London W1 (RL)
bluic012n. Peter took this from about the same spot. (Modern Photo Added: 12-07-2017)
bluic013. Beginning to love Harry's Jaquar car now as he continues his drive around London. I believe the car is an 1950s Jaguar XK150. Shaftesbury Avenue looking back towards Piccadilly Circus. (RL)
bluic013n. And this is Peter's take on the location. (Modern Photo Added: 22-07-2017)
bluic014. What movie based in London wouldn't be complete without a red Telephone Kiosk. Neil Rigby places the location as Tooley Street, London SE1 at the junction with Fair Street looking towards the crossroads with Tower Bridge Street. To the left of the telephone box is the National Westminster Bank and to the right the Tower Bridge Magistrates Court, as was. Neil and I both agree that the box was a prop, the real boxes were on the other side of the road behind the bank. (RL)
bluic015. Harry driving through London just before his first encounter.....
bluic015n. The modern building to the right has been re-modernised. SJ (Modern Photo Added: 15-07-2017)
bluic016. ...an annoyed Harry gets out of his car to confront the driver of the car that hit his car. New Cavendish Street looking over to Great Portland Street, London W1 (RL)
bluc016n. Still a NatWest. SJ (Modern Photo Added: 15-07-2017)
bluic017. First factual clue as to a location, or is it? That curious red Post Office van from the Tower of London parked in Druid Street, London. Having walked Druid Street, London SE1 many times in my life, I am not sure this is the the same street.
bluic017n. Well, Neil Rigby proves that it is the same street with a take from Google Earth. However, I initially shared the scepticism as pedestrianisation seems to have muddied the waters (for some of us!) on some maps. Neil and I agree that it was a prop telephone box as the real box placement would not have provided that shot. (RL) (Modern Photo Added: 17-07-2017)
bluic018. Scene of Harry and Stacey's first close encounter. Great Portland Street at the junction with Mortimer Street, London W1 (RL)
bluic018n. Here with the BT, formerly GPO, Tower looming. SJ (Modern Photo Added: 15-07-2017)
bluic019. Stacey drives away from the scene.
bluic019n. Just to the west of the above junction, where Hallam Street meets New Cavendish Road. SJ (Modern Photo Added: 15-07-2017)
bluic020. Harry returns to his Jaguar car.
bluic020n. Without the above for reference, this would have been tricky to locate. SJ (Modern Photo Added: 15-07-2017)
bluic021. Stacey in her Mercedes, driving through London. Neil Rigby places this as Candover Street, London W1 (RL)
bluic021n. Parking remains a problem and it is still one way Stacey! (RL) (Modern Photo Added: 27-07-2017)
