    "Algerian Coffee Stores" - this shop is located at 52 Old Compton Street, and is still there in 2012.

    "Cafe Torino" was on the corner of Dean Street and Old Compton Street. In 2012 it's a Costa Coffee.

    "Librairie Parisienne" is located at 48 Old Compton Street.

    "Peter Mario Restaurant Ltd" was on Gerard Street, and was a popular haunt of the boxer Henry Cooper.

    "Soho Square" - the camera specifically focuses on the Gardener's Hut within Soho Square.
