Streetscape showing the Woolwich Hippodrome, London


Photograph of a black and white postcard showing the façade and side elevation 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 centre 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. An iron canopy bearing the name of the theatre covers steps leading up to the central entrance. Another canopy continues along the sidewall with a sign across its face reading TWICE NIGHTLY AT 6.40 & 9.10. More signage appears above the canopy reading WMF GRANT & CO. TWICE NIGHTLY also appears at the top of the side wall.
