North side of Leicester Square, looking West. The Empire Theatre on the left of the picture, once a famous music hall, was converted into a cinema shortly before this photograph was taken. In the centre, can be seen Daly's Theatre, which was demolished in 1937, and beyond it is the London Hyppodrome.
1920 AD - 1930 AD
