My Time Machine?
No this industrial equipment is not my Time Machine, it’s the stage control and lighting gear from a tiny room high up in the roof of the Brighton Hippodrome. It’s still in situ, stage right and up a narrow flight of stairs, high above the stage! It looks like it could do with a tad of WD40 and a new fuse to get “lights and the curtain up” again! I wonder when it was last in action; could be 50 years ago or more, when bands of the 60’s played there! I don’t know exactly when the Hippodrome stopped as a theatre and bingo took over, my guess is late 1960’s or very early 1970’s, someone will know? Many thanks to Matsim Properties Ltd who allowed me to take and post the photos!
