Left - a picture taken from the roadway looking south showing what remained of 10 Ruston Close in late 1970. The house is substantially demolished but for the two-storey back addition which remains standing. Above Christie’s ground-floor kitchen can be seen the first-floor kitchen (of Mr Kitchener’s erstwhile flat) where, all accounts seem to agree, Beryl’s body was placed immediately after her murder and prior to removal to the wash house.
Also remaining is part of the front elevation where the entrance door was, to the left of the bay window of Christie’s sitting room.
The pilaster bears the two-tone colouring characteristic of the house during Christie’s occupation but subsequently over-painted. The earlier colouring was restored to give period authenticity for the location shooting of the film 10 Rillington Place earlier in 1970.
