Site: Royal Victoria Music Hall (1 memorial)

E3, Old Ford Road, 234

Our photos were taken in 2018, just before a new, attached, building was constructed, where the hedge is. Happily one section of the 1867 music hall survived both the 1890 rebuilding and the 2018 development. The plaque really ought to draw attention to the fact that a section of the original music hall elevation remains, that the plaque is attached to it.
