Streatham Hill before the Theatre

This view from around 1912 is from close to Downton Avenue looking south towards Streatham Hill railway station. On the right the gardens with large houses were demolished to make way for entertainment buildings such as the Streatham Hill Theatre, Locarno Dance Hall and Gaumont Cinema during the 1920s.

From the Lambeth archive.
