    Default At Least Ten Things You Didn't Know About Kensington

    Been working on this as a postcard design for an event we are holding at Edge Hill station on June 9th (I will put this on in the districts section soon)

    It's great to see the Kensington Picturedrome on it.
    With all the publicity being given to the Bedford cinema in Walton, it goes unnoticed that the Kenny probably opened two days before the Bedford, and was probably the first purpose-built cinema in Liverpool.
    The Kensington opened by invitation only on 24 December 1910 and to the public on the 26th.
    The opening day of the Bedford isn't known, but they were both licensed at the same time.

    I see my photo of the Casino cinema and Ice Rink is there, but I can't remember you asking for permission!

    Steve, excellent piece, you have stated that Edge Hill was the first passenger railway station in the world, wasn't that Crown Street?

    Hi Steve

    Unless I am misreading the caption or you are alluding to something I don't know about, shouldn't it be "Stephenson's Rocket" not "Stephen's Rocket"?

    Chris, it seems full of mistakes, and photos used without permission.
