          Some very atmospheric ones of Mitre square none of which I had seen before and the Hanbury Street ones are new to me as well

            Thanks to Chris 100%, I just did the usual Google trick - lol


            I think those stairways that are visible are akin to George Yard buildings/ Model dwellings

            You'd think there would be loads of photos like these entered into private collections throughout the past few decades

              The presence of a Range Rover puts it as no earlier than about 1971/2. The feature on the right (the railings) was the fire escape for the adjacent building. The site of the murder is out of sight behind the wall on the right.

                Funny you should say that, I was in Mitre Sq, either 71 or 72, and that is just how I remember it.

                  I worked in Mitre Sq. in 66/67, the only difference I can see is the double yellow lines (which every driver seems to have ignored), probably because it was a weekend?
