Trocadero, so many memories, sad to see it like this. :(

Beautiful interior of the Trocadero 1930s. They don't build them like this anymore.

New Kent Road, The Southern Armoury. Tom Collins with Lewis Collins from the Professionals. Not sure of this but I do not think Lewis was related to Tom Collins. The gun shop business was wound up in March 1987 following Tom's death.

I am not sure if the numbers in the New Kent Road were changed over the years. If not then Ballard & Gilbert would have been the shop to the left of The Southern Armoury, (Cubix). Behind the shops in County Street at one time was a timber yard, so there is a possibility??
