MORIE STREET, WANDSWORTH, SW18

Location found by: jno

At four minutes we see this demolition and construction site where Arthur haggles with Pat (Dermot) about the price of the fireplaces. The location has changed completely in recent years with the gasometer much reduced in size and this land built on. The building in the background on Morie Road still exists though as shown in the more recent shot below.
