It's Old Jamaica Road; the red fronted shop is Robinson's. If it weren't for the smoke you would be able to see the Rising Sun and St James's Church beyond Grace Kimmins Gardens.

For those that are interested the Fire Station used for the series was the Old Dockhead Fire station facing Parker's Row. It looks as if it has been rebuilt over the years.

These are memories of Rod (rodebdon) & Bill Kellick (bilko) originally posted in 2010. Hope you don't mind me re-posting them lads but I think they are to good to lose, if there is a problem just let me know. Ray (Kiwi). :)

I worked at Mark Browns at the time of the shooting o the Pool of London.As an apprentice electrician i had the job of erecting the Cargo Lights beneath the crane Gantries for the night shooting.Met Bonar colleano and some of the other cast on several occasions.The ship was the Jaroslav Dubrowski,and they used to paper the name Dunbar on it,before it came through the Bridge.Remonded me of just how dull and dingy Shad Thames and the wharehouses were in the 50's . loved it .... Bill kellick

rodebdon
Hi Bill,
Fancy being involved in the film that's great, and remembering that the ship was called the Jaroslav Dubrowski. London was badly beaten up by the bombing, and so much of it was still in a bad state in the 50's it was after all just a short time after the War. The strange thing is that I think it was much more attractive then than it is now, whatever they pull down and replace with modern stuff it just does not look right.
I loved the old Bermondsey dusty, damaged and a bit dingy but it was great, and I always think of it in black and white just like the films.
Rod
