Staines, Middlesex, The High Street 1933

Staines, Middlesex, The High Street 1933, showing the Majestic Theatre. The films being shown are 'The Blarney Stone' and 'Topaz' both of which came out in 1933. The cinema has been replaced in the Google Street View by 'Majestic House', but this has recently been demolished too, along with the old post office next door. Postcard by Charles Mitchell of Hampton. Click the postcard to enlarge.

  1. I can see why they wanted to demolish the 'Majestic House', but the post office looks (looked) to be one of the few nice buildings in this area.

  2. it was such a shame
