Northwood, Middlesex, Church Street 1913

This splendid postcard by W. H. Applebee shows an early cinema - an original 'fleapit'. The film being advertised is Quo Vadis. There are not many of these old fleapits left now, but this one in Northwood still survives, but only just. In the Google Streetview image you can see it is very dilapidated and has become the Northwood Old Folks Dining Club. However I believe that has closed now and there are plans to demolish the cinema.
