Caledonian Park Clock Tower Metropolitan Cattle Market

The Caledonian Park Clock Tower - a Grade II*-listed structure, as the centrepiece of a vast cattle market. The Metropolitan Cattle Market opened in 1855 in Holloway, then on the very fringes of London. The site replaced the ancient Smithfield Cattle Market, whose central location caused frequent problems, with drovers and animals clogging the streets. The seven-storey tower presided over the market until it closed after World War II. The area was later transformed into the Market Estate and Caledonian Park. Date: circa 1908

Marlborough Theatre, Holloway Road

Promotional postcard for the Marlborough Theatre, 383 Holloway Road. Although first proposed in 1899, the Theatre didn't actually open however, until well into the 20th-century. It was built for F. W. Purcell by Messrs. Patman and Fatheringham, and was designed by the now renowned Theatre Architect, Frank Matcham. It opened on Monday the 5th October, 1903 with a week of the Carla Rosa Opera Company. The auditorium of the Marlborough consisted of Stalls and Pit, Dress Circle, Upper Circle, and Gallery, with a capacity of 2,612. Sadly the Theatre only presented live theatre for a short period before it was converted for cinema use by Provincial Cinematograph Theatres, reopening on the 28th of May 1918 as the Marlborough Picture Theatre. It closed its doors in 1957 and remained derelict until it was demolished in 1962 for the construction of an office building called Marlborough House, which is currently in use by the City and Islington College. Date: circa 1903
