If you have any information regarding this film, any of the stills, or even better, some NOW shotsclick here.
We are always looking for more help with identifying these filming locations and would be grateful for any positive identifications, snippets or references you can offer about these movie making locations.
To view the now location shot, just mouseover the filming location still. Stills with a red border do not have a now shot.
qu001. Goldhawk Road, Shepherds Bush.
quod001n. When perusing this site it is always sad to see nearly unrecognisable "now shots" held together by one or two surviving reference points.
We now all have the chance to preserve a location from one of the best loved seventies films.
Hammersmith and Fulham council want to demolish a row of Victorian shops in Goldhawk Road W12. "A.COOKES" pie and mash shop (Est 1899) is one of the shops that will disappear. Quadrophenia fans will of course know that this where Phil Daniels and Ray Winstone meet up after encountering each other in the baths and realise they are adherents of different youth cults,somewhat souring their reunion.
There are no exterior shots in the film but I for one do not want to see thriving businesses, let alone historic film locations, make way for another soulless block of expensive flats. They are of no use to local residents,film fans,mods and lovers of a fast disappearing traditional nosh up.
Whenever I find a film location thats largely demolished a wave of sadness comes over me, we all love old films and old film locations,we now have the chance to help save one.

qu005bn. Exterior of party house at the fictional, 'Kitchener Road'. Actually in Clarendon Gardens, Brent. Garden has been converted to hard-standing for cars, but house remains almost unchanged. Even the colouring of it, and the house next-door, from the original screen-grab, remains the same. Kieran McAleer. (Modern Photo Added: 13-06-2011)
qu006a. Underneath the old Ha'penny Steps, Harrow Rd, claims Aidan McManus. Reasonable, I suppose, but in the dark, and briefly, it could be a dozen tow-paths anywhere in London. Aidan further adds…the bridge isnt there any more and looks completely different now, even the towpaths been changed, the new bridge is in a different place and those lights you see in the background are in the Harrow Rd. and have been obliterated by a new building. I have cycled up and down that stretch of the canal for a long time and recognised it instantly having had a similar liason there myself. Aidan McManus.
qu006an. Now. The path still looks much the sake but that's all. Aidan McManus. (Modern Photo Added: 13-06-2010)
