    Their shop and warehouse was in the City of London, directly opposite Liverpool Street Station.
    They gave their address in adverts as BISHOPSGATE ST., E.C.
    However it’s main entrance door was in the side, 14 New Street, and gave access to the hallway, showroom and stairs to the upper floors.
    The full address was 14 NEW STREET, BISHOPSGATE, LONDON.
    My father leased the main ground floor showroom
    from Teetgen’s until about 1970. He traded and imported oriental rugs, and traded under his name JOHN METAXIDES.
    The building was later rebuilt in much the same form and size.
    His showroom is now occupied by SPECSAVERS.
    The side facing Bishopsgate Street , is occupied by WRAPITUP! takeaway food.
    This is true as of today, 07/10/2019.

  • I cannot add this to the Cinema site as I have no picture.
    To the Editor;
    I recall being taken to a cinema on Brighton sea front somewhere near the West Pier.
    If I recall correctly, it was called “The Palladium” and it seemed to me as a young child that it was old – maybe an old theatre. The film I saw with my father was a Russian classic called “The Battleship Potempkin”. Ca you edit this into “Cinemas” after checking it out and letting me know?

  • Hello John
    You are right about the cinema – The Palladium was on the seafront.
    If you look on the Regency Society you will see a photo
    Hope this helps

  • I may (I stress may) be able to donate below mentioned panoramic school photos. Brighton & Hove Archives don’t want my offer of a donation of old ‘Hove County School for Boys’ panoramic school photos dated 1946 and 1948 as they say they have copies already. There MUST be another local Hove archive that would have them, surely? Any suggestions please?
