By the way - that chain on the left really is made of ice. It was among the sculptures at the Ice Hotel, Jukkasjarvi, Sweden, in winter 2002/3.  Home

For a history of the music hall theatre and information specifically about London please see this fascinating site. It's about performer Arthur Lloyd but there's lots of interesting stuff on the site about his life and times.

Want to know about the Victorian Cinema?  Yes - there really was one! Here's a wonderful site for your perusal. Much more detail than the Anorak could hope to include on the topic.

This image has been lifted from the site it links to. (and I apologise now but I hope the owner won't mind, since I'm linking to it)  It's a great site with some fascinating stuff about pubs of the Midlands and there's history and pictures of architecture and it's so much like the Anorak except for the fact that it's pub based (and so's the Anorak - given the opportunity!) that it simply had to be included.  And obviously a canal history anorak couldn't resist this sign!
