It's a Great Day - This film is based on 'The Grove Family', a BBC television soap opera that is generally regarded to be the first of its kind broadcast in Britain. The style of the brickwork makes this likely to be one of the viaducts on the District Line between Ravenscourt Park and Stamford Brook, west of the former Studland Road Junction.
