Summary:
The town in this particularly attractive film, originally one of our 'Edwardian Enigmas', has now been positively identified as Whitehaven, on the Cumbrian coast. The Anchor Vaults pub still stands on the corner of Queen Street and Market Place today. At one point a pair of showmen lark about with vegetables from a street grocer's stall, then hand out handbills advertising this film's screening. Special thanks to John Addy and Michael Burdett for diligently working out the location from clues in the film.
