On the left, just before the kink in the road are some rather interesting window shades that have tapered uprights running up the side of the window opening. Some of these still exist today on a 1953-constructed building marked as #22. Although the main portion of this block was demolished, and now the Kimberley Hotel occupies the space, number 22 is a partial remnant of this once larger block and still has the distinct tapered window shades. If you look beyond the road there is a large white building that I believe is South Sea Mansions. It's still around and was built the same year this film was made, so I'm wondering if I can still detect some scaffolding on the exterior?
Anyway, once again a big thanks to Thomas.
If anyone has any memories of "Lily's Garden" or any other bar around there, feel free to leave a comment.
