MAURICE & TERRY TAKE A TAXI AFTER THE SECOND CARD GAME - THEN & NOW - Pictures by nry
DELANCEY STREET, CAMDEN, NW1

Location found by: nry

There is a slight blooper location just after 41m10s, when Maurice & Terry leave the club after the second poker game. Initially they get into a taxi on Pratt Street. Before the driver (played by stuntman Alan Stuart) has even turned the key they magically find themselves further along the road at this location in Delancey Street. 'The Crown' (known more recently as 'The Crown & Goose') pub in Arlington Road is clearly visible in both shots (since demolished in 2014).

We then catch a brief glimpse of the old gasometer in Camley Street/Goods Way through the taxi's rear window. This area has changed dramatically since filming was done, the old St Pancras Church in the background and the gasometer's frame are still present.

Moments later Terry takes on the taxi driver and the taxi is forced all over the road. This happens further along Camley Street after the bridge.
