Streatham High Road, summer 1978
Streatham High Road, summer 1978
Photo taken looking north towards Streatham Hill. To the left is the Odeon and at this time it was still a single screen When opened in 1930, its exotic interiors made it an "atmospheric" where the audience could escape into mock Egyptian fantasy! in the background can be seen "The High", a 1930's mansion block with integral swimming pool. Note the light traffic. It is the constant grind of heavy traffic that contributed to the decline of this once thriving shopping centre.
