SS23 Dundas St, London

SS23 Dundas Street London

Taken from Article by Jane Sims - The Capitol Theatre and Bowles building, once thought to be too derelict to restore, have made majestic comebacks on London's Dundas Street, breathing new life into a block of core buildings between Clarence and Richmond streets that badly need a new draw. London developer Shmuel Farhi and the City of London who came together with an idea that would save the buildings. The Capitol was built in 1920 and was known as the Allen. It had a long lobby with mirrored walls that led to a large theatre. But after the years of neglect, it became a Dundas Street eyesore with a sign on its marquee that said R.I.P. The Bowles building was added in 1928, and was a restaurant and a jewelry store.
