The Ritz cinema, Edgware, north London, typical
of cinemas in their heyday. Note the billboards announcing the film title
Lisbon Story with Patricia Burke and David Farrar. These date
the photograph to after 1946 and probably around the 1950s. Photo reproduced
according to the terms and conditions of
Flickr. A photo in the Barnet Archive confirms that the cinema was in existence in the 1930s.
Also note the ever-present adjacent sweet shop,
in this case Maynards.
