Flame in the Streets - This is Canal View, from the bridge over Royal College Street NW1.  This was the subject of a great deal of pondering over in the Guess Where London flickr group. http://http://www.flickr.com/photos/icewharfjames/1196647108/in/set-72157601054977773/ These houses were pulled down in the sixties. Funnily enough, it was once called Canal Terrace, renamed View in 1937, and it is behind St Pancras, sort of.  But it's not the place now called Canal Terrace.
