Shanklin Theatre...and former Town Hall

Shanklin Theatre...and former Town Hall
Originally a literary institute of 1879, later the town hall and then a theatre. This larger northern façade in French classical style is mainly of 1933-34 by Messrs Cooper and Corbett and a rebuilding of the 1878 Literary Institute after a fire. A Grade ll Listed building since 2010.

Explored!

A former member of Iper told me a while ago, Queen Victoria used to spend a lot of time on the Isle of Wight and posted some pictures of her palace in due course.

The glory of that great time surely let these buildings sprout out of the ground like mushrooms.
Good to see this old house in good preservation.

Many thanks, Norbert. You have highlighted why taking mushrooms from the 'Crown estate' is a crime in the UK!

Oh really? I was not aware of that.
Could have been the reason of a night for free in Old Bailey when I visited Buckingham Palace. Because I love chanterelles. Thank goodness, there grew none,)
