Riverside regeneration
Riverside regeneration
A broadside view across the Avon of the demolition at the Shakespeare Memorial Theatre as part of the RSC's 112.8M refurbishment programme. To the left is rounded end of the original 1879 Victorian Gothic theatre, now housing the Swan Theatre. In the centre is the fly tower and to its right is the remaining main auditorium riverside wall of Elizabeth Scott's 1932 "new" Memorial Theatre. The riverside frontage which used to house the restaurant has been demolished and the blue girders support the remains of the main auditorium wall.

The riverside trees also seem to have been cut back to their basic structures to match!
