An absolute scandal when they got rid of our history, He who was responsible for the Grand Arcade doesn't work in Wigan now leaving us with this mess.

Looks like the film showing at the ritz is Zulu which would date this to the late 60s.

The buses and the cars suggest a much earlier date than that, M.M. The film at the Ritz is "Lili" which was released in 1953. You can just make out the stars' names: Leslie Caron and Mel Ferrer.
