Alhambra Leicester Square CC97_00503

Alhambra theatre, Leicester Square, Westminster, London 1870-'82. York & Son wet collodion glass plate negative.
The Alhambra in Londons Leicester Square was the brainchild of the impresario and showman Edward Tyrell Smith who bought it in 1858 for the staging of circus acts and later musical theatre. Its Moorish styling included domes, minarets, and horseshoe arches. A fire in 1882 led to its rebuilding, but it was demolished in 1936 as the popularity of music hall entertainment declined. It was replaced by an Oden Cinema (see BB87_03577)
