Dorian Gray (aka The Secret of Dorian Gray)

dg001a. That's a good one, if you can find it......Probably says KNIGHT'S GARAGE on the rounded building on the left.

dg001an. White Knight Garage stood at 257 Kensal Road in north London. The area has been redeveloped beyond recognition but here is a photo from the era showing the garage ... long since demolished. Sent in by Chris Bond, solving a ten year old mystery with our thanks. (SJ)

Dorian Gray (aka The Secret of Dorian Gray) - Martin Green identifies this location as Kensal Road W10 adding that the buildings beyond the garage are still standing. The garage plot is now part of the laundry business which was operated by the same company, having it's original entrance on Conlan Street. The street was seen in ‘Steptoe and Son Ride Again’. (SJ)

dg001bn. And indeed here is the now, with thanks to Chris Bond who adds, "Kensal Road London W10, the white building on the left now called White Knight Laundry, was the site of the garage: the buildings beyond survive but the opposite side of the road has been totally redeveloped. The victorian Gasometer structure is still there and visible on the horizon at the end of the street." (SJ)

dg002a. What used to be called County Hall, Lambeth, SE London, with a bit of Westminster Bridge thrown in.

dg002an. About where the ornamental rings run out between Westminster and Waterloo bridges. Now just where the London Eye is, so impossible to get a clear shot. SJ.
