Arthur's Car Lot

Several car lots featured throughout the series and this location changes several times.

Series 1-6

This is the famous car lot that featured in the opening title sequence of each episode. This location is on the junction of Augustine Road and Dewhurst Road W14, in Hammersmith. The place where Terry & Arthur shake hands now has two houses built on it. However, the pointed roof of the Addison Boys Club in the background can be seen in both shots.

ARTHUR'S CAR LOT 1 - THEN & NOW
AUGUSTINE ROAD/DEWHURST ROAD, W14

The first two pictures in both sequences show as near as possible the same locations. Notice the tree behind Arthur. The exact position where Arthur would be standing today is where the house wall is situated.

The THEN picture on the left is taken in the car lot. The NOW picture on the right shows the two houses now built on that plot. The NOW photo was taken facing the car lot standing approximately where the red Vauxhall Victor/white Ford Transit are in the first picture above left.
