These screen grabs are taken from a 1972 film. I believe they show the view north-west along Harrow Road from the corner of Fifth Avenue. The corner building at that location, No. 690 Harrow Road, was once a bakers and the junk shop clearly shows old Hovis signs on the window. The next building along, No. 692 Harrow Road, was Robert A Jones & Son, undertaker. Sadly that stretch of Harrow Road has been demolished since 1972 so I cannot confirm or deny the location. Can anyone assist?
