IN THE PRISONER: In "Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling", Number Six (played by Nigel Stock) visits a photographic establishment to pick up some slides and have a passport photograph taken.

IN REALITY: The site used for the exterior of the shop was "World Cameras", located at the Victoria Collonade, Southampton Row, Holborn, London WC1. The establishment remained unchanged until 1991 (the photo shown left is from 1988) when it changed it's name to "York Cameras" (see 2 photos below). The owners of York Cameras had a Prisoner display in the shop, with production stills from the scene. In 2001 the building was sadly changed beyond recognition as the colonnade underwent complete refurbishment, with York Cameras (minus "Prisoner" display) moving 100 yards round the corner. The site is now used by "Powercuts Hairdressers".
