The Coburg Hotel, London


These found snaps show the Coburg Hotel, in the Bayswater Road, which is next to the Queensway underground station.  All the details are a little blurred, but it was just possible to make out the hotel and station name.


The Coburg was a location for filming Hitchcock's movie 'Frenzy' in 1972, though I would think from the car registration plates that this photo is from the 1960s. 



Today's google street view here.

  1. If I remember well not one of his best movies. But what a fine location for a hotel; near museums, parks and public transit. And thank you for the trailer, Hitch didn't lose his sense of humor at high age!

  2. I like all these photos, what a treasure you have. I especially enjoy seeing the automobiles from back then.

  3. London in the 1960s recalls Blow-Up and a lot of other great movies, music, and so on.
