Colour-tinted postcard showing the façade of the Woolwich Hippodrome within a streetscape of Wellington Street in Woolwich, London. The theatre, with its broad front in brick with stone dressings, dominates the right hand side of the postcard. It has five major bays with the centre and outer bays advancing to three storeys (over two in between) and crowned by iron-crested pavilion roofs. Steps lead up to the central entrance and advertising signage is visible at street-level on the nearest corner.
