The Royal Standard Music Hall,
Victoria, London, 1907

Royal Standard Music Hall

Royal Standard Music Hall, Victoria, London.

(photo: unknown, London, 1907)

This photograph of the Royal Standard Music Hall shows the 1886 building as it was in 1907, complete with passing traffic (a horse-drawn wagon and an automobile) and a horse-drawn Great Northern Railway wagon parked outside the neighbouring Dispensary of the St. George's Union. The advertised programme includes John Peterman and his Company in The Belle of the Orient, an entertainment in three scenes by James W. Tate and others that was first produced at the Empire Theatre, Islington, on 18 July 1904.

For further information and an illustration of the Victoria Palace Theatre that stands on the site today, see Matthew Lloyd's, a fascinating site devoted to the life and times of his famous music hall ancestor, Arthur Lloyd.
