Was our local cinema. :(

 

"FE Bromige’s Grosvenor (later Odeon) - in Rayner's Lane, Harrow - is one of London’s finest suburban cinema buildings. Opened in 1935, its art deco frontage features an abstract representation of an elephant’s trunk. The building is now a centre of worship for members of the Zoroastrian faith and was used as the location for 'Eyes Down', a BBC TV comedy set in a bingo hall."

Thanks guys.

 

Kirk - I hoped you would spot it. I am going to do a series on the building but cannot get inside until later in the year. So will have to do the outside first. The Zoroastrian's have restored both the outside and the inside. Before they took over it had been a nightclub (:eek:) and a Bingo hall (double :eek:).

 

Fortunately they recognised its worth.

Are all Zoroastrians great photographers and decent gentlemen? :)

 

We like to think so!!

 

But seriously, we were a kingdom before Christ. More a "tribe" now!! About 60,000 left in India and a few thousand in Iran, Ukraine and some other parts of Eurasia!

 

Zubin Mehta? Freddie Mercury (Queen)?? All Zoroastrians!!
