United Kingdom, London

The story.
Rory and Donal drove to the London city. They parked near famous Marquee Club.

Rory wants to by Fender "Rock-n-Roll" strings. Donal wants to go to Hammer House.
They have a couple of free time. Donal goes to the Hammer House. Rory walk to Guitar shop ( Fender Sound House )

Image Image

Image Image

But the story how Rory gets to the Guitar shop read a bit later...

Well, the end of the story how Rory gets to the Guitar Shop "Fender Sound House".

After parking a car at Marquee Club Rory went down to the Guitar Shop.

Image Image

Image Image

It's was very hard to find this place to me. Actually, this Guitar Shop isn't located at the same way as Rory went down on the video.

Image Image

This is was able trought the shop window ( see last two pics). You can see the houses overethere at background. The same arch above the door, the same windows, trees..

ImageImage

Image Image

Image Image

Image Image

Now, there's some store shop "Republic".

And, if to look at the map of Rory path from Marquee Club to Guitar Shop... we can see the long long way of walk :)

Rory on bridge. Near an old Crowley's Music Shop. The buidings on right not look the same as at original pic.
I think they re-builded it. (Dunnes Stores long buildings) And first place for Crowley's shop somewhere there at red brick wall. Correct me please!


Image
Now
The same place where Rory shot was taken.
(Subrata! I have found your place where you got a shot at the bridge. But you've just missed one bridge to get the place where Rory got a shot walkin in It'74! :)) )


Hi Jim, Yes I did miss the bridge Rory walked on. I realised after I developed my photoes. Oh well. But it was so lovely to walk the streets that Rory did and I felt him everywhere. I think he was my tour guide! I will go back soon. Subrata. x
