I think picture #11 is at the eastern end of Cricket Inn Road, approaching bottom of Manor Lane.

It is the bottom of Manor Lane.

hi you are bang right with the locations of stills 1 2 and3 the terraced houses seen in 2 on granville st overlooked the old ponds forge. i actually stood and watched these scenes being filmed. as a kid around 12 or 13 years old. we knew Tony Booth as the scouse git from the bbc tv comedy programme with alf garnett. incidently the older lady behind the jag with the shopping bag.was recruited as an extra.

You are absolutely bang on, in fact as a kid I too stood and watched them filming one of the scenes. I lived on Granville road but was always out and about on my pushbike. Looking over the railings in the picture you can see the corner entrance to the Rag N Tag market.
