Forget the theatres and the films, concentrate on the date alone, something happened this day in every venue.

I didn't notice the date at the top.....Dohhh!

May 12 , 1937 was the date of George VI's Coronation. So, presumably, there was a live SOUND broadcast transmitted to all these venues ?????

The level of detail might suggest I'm in possession of a newspaper of this date but probably not for long ...., so Stuart, when are you back at work ? :)
