Living away, I haven't been to that part of town for a while, but in order there were the General Hospital, Town swimming baths and the old park, which was a great place for kids - overgrown woodland, which you can see in the background of the view in the film of the fishing smack unloading mussels.

P.S. I once sat on Hoppalong Cassidy's horse (Topper) outside the entrance to the General Hospital.

Yes .. the ' new '  Central Park was / is  a bit  flat and clinical .. though  I used to play Lone Ranger on the rockery paths at t'other end on the way to ParkBoard school . mid to late 1950s.
