Default The Prisoner. Camera Shop Location.

https://www.theunmutual.co.uk/worldcam.htm

Photographers watching the TV series The Prisoner may recognise this shop.

I read some place that the chap who played the role of the camera shop assistant was the father of the more well known actor Timothy West.

As soon as I saw the shop when first shown I recognised it from the adverts in Amateur Photographer magazine.

A little bit of nostalgia for fans of the series.

they used to get so busy in there that they installed a ticket dispenser ,you had to take one and it had a number on it, you had to wait for your number to be called ,you can only guess the trouble that caused .There was always one man there that refused to use it .
