Plaster decoration at the New Oxford Theatre Featured 9 Jan 2020 Print

Plaster decoration at the New Oxford Theatre

A workman seen high up in the roof of the New Oxford Theatre in the process of erecting plaster decoration from Messrs. White Allom for Charles B. Cochran. Originally known as the Oxford Music Hall, the theatre was located in London at the corner of Oxford Street and Tottenham Court Road on the site of a former public house, the Boar and Castle, by Charles Morton, in 1861. In 1917 the music hall was converted into a legitimate theatre, and in 1921 it was renamed the New Oxford Theatre and refurbished by impresario Charles B. Cochran. In May 1926, just five and a half years after this picture, it closed and was demolished. Date: 1920

The Hon. Mrs Bowes-Lyon and her children Featured 9 Jan 2020 Print

The Hon. Mrs Bowes-Lyon and her children

Mrs Bowes-Lyon, formerly Fenella Hepburn-Stuart-Forbes-Trefusis, Lord Clinton's younger daughter and wife of John Bowes-Lyon, Lord Strathmore younger son and brother to Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother. She is pictured with her two eldest children, Anne (1917-1980) and Nerissa (1919-2014). Nerissa, along with another younger sister Katherine, who was born in July 1926, was mentally disabled. Both girls became residents of Earlswood Hospital in 1941 and were never seen in public. Controversy lingers over the family's involvement with them - they were both listed in Burke's Peerage as having died in 1963 and it was reported that none of the Bowes-Lyon family ever visited them, or attended their funerals. Date: 1920
