518 – Blue Plaque No. 2 – Thornton Theatre

Today, you get two pictures up front.

I knew that the plaque for The Thornton Theatre was here. What I don’t think I have done so before is stand back and look at the building to which the plaque is attached. When I took the picture of the plaque this morning I was thinking about this post, and I thought the least I could do was give you a picture of the building.

When I stood back over the other side of the street and lined up to take the picture I really looked at the building. If you ignore today’s usage, you can see that in the 30 years of the life of the building as a theatre this would have been a grand building. Today, it remains a grand building, but that grandness is slightly marred by the frontages of the shops (I am not here talking about the specific business, that is irrelevant – anything which takes away from the grandeur of the original building reduces that).

I have to say that I am very tempted to go in to either of the two buildings and ask if there is anything left of the original theatre. I am having a little bit of a problem locating the back of the building from Google Maps or Earth. If I am correct in what I am looking at, there isn’t much left at all.

This is one of several plaques on the High Street, and there is also one not far off the high street. I’ll do another one next week.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
