Street of Shadows - And that looks like a branch of Anello and Davide. This could well be the corner of Drury Lane & Dryden St, Covent Gdn. A & D had a shop on this corner. Go on Google, enter Dryden St, click on map, street view, click to right of 'Lowlander' to see location. Shop now occupied by 'Bloch' looks a likely candidate? Sorry - no photos - live in Adelaide! Regards Clive T. Well done from far away and down under. Thanks Clive.

Street of Shadows - Romero outside the Marquis of Granby pub. If the pub name is correct then I suspect it could be the 'Marquis of Granby' at Rathbone St, Fitzrovia - the pillars etc look very similar! Regards, Clive Turner.
