    Glimpsed at 0:40 is the former Harverson Surplus shop, at 170 Merton High Street, then at 01:26 we see the RACS supermarket.

    At 01:52, John Hall Tools Ltd is seen. At 01:58 we see a shop signed as "R M Walsh", (looks like it may have been a newsagents).

    Older tracking shots, circa 1950s, of the same High Street can be seen in clip 3273.11.
