Larking about on the set of A Clockwork Orange

My friend George, an engineer and inventor who amongst other things developed the modern roulette wheel, has had an interesting life. During the 70's he worked on film sets including Kubrick's A Clockwork Orange. He spent a lot of time at the house which featuring prominently in the film and his duties including keeping an eye on things overnight.  This provided a great opportunity to lark about on set and the photos below were taken during this time.  I discovered the existence of these photos while having a drink with George at the Holborn Wetherspoons and was very keen to see them so he kindly scanned them and now I’d like to share them.  I doubt they have ever been seen elsewhere before.
