  • The pavement clock was situated outside No. 9 Thames Street in Windsor, and remained there until some time in the 1980s.

    On 28th January 2011 a new version of the clock was installed in its place........

  • The man installing the clock at the start of the film is Bernard Mummery, who apparently was also the Royal Clock Winder at Windsor Castle.

  • "Jeweller Mr. C. D. Dyson walks out of door" - clarifying my earlier comment, the man walking out of the door is Bernard Mummery, of Dysons Jewellers.
