Victoria Hall, 1889, J Russell Walker

Built out of a desire to show loyal regard for Her Majesty in the Jubilee year of her reign, it cost £2800, and was opened by the Earl of Rosebery. Wildly out of scale with the street of predominantly two- and three-storey town houses, what really mattered was the Germanic skyline of the corbelled turrets and pinnacles sliced off in the 1937 transformation by Alexander Cattanach to the Ritz Cinema, leaving battlements, machicolations, niches, the great window and round-headed door with rope-moulding.
