    A crime that the Theatre was demolished. Great pictures yet again. Thanks Colin.

    Great pic' Colin,but sad that almost all vestiges of David Lewis's benevolence to the city,have now gone!Even his grave in Dean rd.is in a sorry state,though there is some plan to renovate this,along with the rest of the cemetery.
