    What a sad end… 1969? It’s almost a metaphor for The Fall of the Picture Palaces.
    Fab pix, the second one is ever-so familiar 😉

    So sad… in London many such palaces live on in ignominious roles as bingo halls, night clubs, oversized public houses and even car parks, but the bulk have been lost to us too.
    Too sad.

        Yes. Somewhere in the London Metropolitan Archive there are whole boxes of photographs of former theatres just prior to demolition. There amongst them is the ignominious end of an old music hall in Hoxton, the stage still intact, the floor of the orchestra stalls filled with clunky, boxy 1970s cars.
        Awful.

        As you can imagine I am a familiar of the place. Indeed I volunteered there for a time… the largest city archive in the world, with holdings stretching back to 1067!

        And do return… surely we are due a revisit from you!?!
