Green Lane, filming of
1962. View shows a scene from the film 'Billy Liar' being shot on location at a site off Green Lane, with Green Lane Primary School in the background. Demolition was taking place of terraced housing in the area, so the presence of semi-demolished houses added authenticity to a scene depicting a ruined city. This scene, which shows a group of women marching under a banner proclaiming 'Viva Ambrosia', is part of a dream world imagined by the character Billy Fisher, otherwise known as Billy Liar, who sees himself as the head of the imaginary state of Ambrosia.
