    Could you tell what pub is shown in the film? there is a photo of Walthamstow Avenue Football Club team on the wall and I\'d like to get hold of a copy of it. The photo shows the team with the captain holding a shield between his knees. I am almost sure this is my grandfather - George A. Simmons. the still is 00.18.
    I\'d be most grateful for any help on this.
    Regards, Barbara Simmons
