    Default Lime Street, 1931

    Here is another photograph of Lime Street, presumably taken by the same photographer but from a vantage point closer to St George’s Hall.The year is 1931 judging by the two films showing at the Scala and Palais de Luxe.

    Bit of a mystery this,to the left of "Hell Below Zero" is the film "The Lawless Woman" and that was made in 1931.

    Most odd.

    Hi George - there was another Hell Below Zero (A Trip to the Mountains of the Moon) - also made in 1931.

    Hell Below Zero, 1931, is documentary filmmaker Carveth Wells filmed record of the Massee Expedition to Central Equatorial Africa. The expedition was an effort to retrace the steps of 19th-century naturalist Sir Richard Burton, including a dangerous trek to the Mountains of the Moon. An amusing sidelight of the film is Wells' insistence upon debunking several myths about Africa. When showing a pride of lions, for example, the narrator insists that these huge beasts are as apt to run away from humans as they are to devour them (that's easy for him to say!) Hell Below Zero was filmed under the auspices of the Minneapolis Museum and Chicago Geographical Society.

    Another gem Colin. Good to see St George's Hall pediment sculptures still in place.
