    "Location Unknown / Unclear." - the location is the Ivy House, North End Road, Golders Green, London.

    The clip's current date range of 1940-49 is inaccurate, Pavlova having died in 1931. A new date range of 1920-31 would clearly be more appropriate.

    "Pavlova sitting in her garden with elderly man" - the man looks likely, (though not certain) to be Victor Dandre, Pavlova's manager and companion.

    This footage is likely to be linked to clip 1018.07, dated 1930.

    Or even more likely to be linked to clip 755.42, dated 1931!
