I was having a look at the British Pathe site and found the following three historic clips which were filmed somewhere in Forest Hill. Does anyone know where in Forest Hill the filming might have taken place?

Two of the clips show work in studios, but the only studios I’m aware of are in Havelock Walk - were there studios there in the 1950’s? And we’re told that the outdoor pool is at the tennis and swimming club – but where might that have been? It’s not a pool that I recognise.

I guess the people featured in the clips could still be alive and might even be residing in the Forest Hill area.

The first is from 1952 and shows an Architectural modeller at work in his studio in Forest Hill.

The next is from 1954 and shows a swimming teacher “water sailing” in an outdoor pool in Forest Hill.

The third is from 1960 and shows an Industrial designer at work in his studio in Forest Hill.
