South Tottenham – The Salvage Gang (1958)

The Salvage Gang (1958) | South Tottenham

Another example of the genre of extremely low-stakes post-war British cinema, of kids scrounging a bomb-damaged London for scrap materials and amiable adventures. John Krish directs Alimami Allen, Amanda Coxell and Frazer Hines as children who blunt a saw and go scavenging for metal to replace it. Chasing a brass bed on a lorry up City road by bus, the gang pass nearby Moorfields Eye Hospital (which you last saw in ‘Day Of The Triffids‘ at Marylebone on the map).
