Blue Lamp, The - Don't know, do you? Could this curved terrace be the one we saw in End of the Affair? I think this is Warwick Crescent, now demolished, it would make sense as all the night scenes would have been shot at the same time. (why?) and it's right next to the bridge, the canal is on the other side of the road and it just looks right. Aidan McManus. And that's why we suggested it. John Tunstill.

bp015n. Phew, after all that I agree. The rebuilt Warwick Crescent starts after the corner block so perhaps we should have another butcher's at the film to glimpse the corner. SJ
