St James RoadPicture from the forum of Rialto Cinema St James Road now long gone but replaced by another building with Southwark Works on the door does anyone know what this is all about?. The old auditorium of the cinema has gone and this has been replaced by another building can anyone tell us what this building is?In the old picture we can see Harpers Barbers shop next to the Rialto does anyone remember John Harper who took over the shop from his father and lived in either Roul Road or Lindsey Street?[image][image]

I remember Tom Harper, who I presume was John Harper's father? He used to cut mine and my dad's hair in the late 1950's. My Nan used to take me to the Rialto with her every Wednesday night in the mid 1940's, and I continued to use it until I left the area in 1952. While I have very fond memories of the place, I was sexually assaulted there one afternoon when I was about eight; I didn't actually realise what had happened until I was about eighteen! It took us a long time to find out about such things in those days!

I remember the Rialto Cinema. I recall my friends and I being bored one Saturday afternoon and so we decided to go to the pictures. We were all about 14 years old (1957-ish). We sat in the 3rd row from the back and there were a couple of people sitting in the second row from the front. Not a packed house. I can't remember the name of the movie but it was something to do with Vikings. Despite the Rialto being in decline and almost empty, we still managed to get ourselves barred that afternoon. The good news is we got our money back - the good old days ha! ha!

St James' Road about 1952 looking towards Strathnairn Street where the bagwash was on the corner. (That's me and my mum next to the prefabs).
