A conundrum . . .


This is a frame from the 1952 Ealing Studios film "I Believe in You". That's Cecil Parker walking toward what is obviously Lots Road, but which street is it? And aren't those prefabs?

Comments:
It's Upcerne Road and I think the camera is positioned on the King's Road. I remember seeing the prefabs as a kid. Apparently one of them was home to Alan Hudson.
 
Yes, they are pre-fabs, read more here:

Yes, top of Upcerne road. Just a little further along in the picture, on the right at the junction of Meek street was a playground called the "cage" where all the kids played football.
