1899 – Theatre of Varieties, Kilburn, London

Architect: Palgrave & Co.


“This plate illustrates the design of a proposed new Palace of Varieties, which is about to be commenced, with some slight modification in the elevation, on the site of the existing Theatre Royal, which is fully licensed as a theatre and music-hall, and which will also absorb the adjoining property known as Barnes’ Depository. The property will have a frontage to Belsize-road (facing Kilburn station, L. and N.W.Ry.) of S2ft., and to Kilburn Priory of 89ft. The interior will be constructed on the cantilever system without columns, proscenium opening 30ft., width of stage 64ft., and depth 31ft. The latest fire appliances will be used, and the building will be lighted by electricity. Messrs. Palgrave and Co., of Victoria- street, S.W., are the architects.” From The Building News, May 26 1899.
