John always enjoy the pictures that you post. The Winter one of the City Hall is beautiful and of course the Hollywood Archs brings a tear to my eye. Hope all is well with you.

The Popular or Pop Lower Newtownards Road. Opened 1917. Destroyed in The Blitz. Rebuilt and reopened 1947. Closed 1962. When i was 9, me and my 12 year old brother went to the Pop. A boy about 12 picked on me. i told him i would get my big brother to sort him out. My big brother got a slack eye. He still reminds me about it 60 years on.

John loved the picture of the Strand. Spent many a happy time there both inside and out and skipping down Pims Avenue singing the songs from the movie we had just seen. :smile: :air_kiss:
