I Live in Grosvenor Square (aka A Yank In London)  - Perhaps North Audley Street, leading to Oxford Street, from Grosvenor Square, W1. A large PX store was in this street in the 50's and 60's, where imported goods, not seen in British shops, were available to US forces. Actors or passing servicemen?

I Live in Grosvenor Square (aka A Yank In London)  - Monument Street, City of London, EC. And without actors all we are doing is a documentary. And, yes, we know that actors are lurking in the taxi, but we can't see them. But, as Roy is such a good contributor, we'll let him get away with this. One time only!
