In this photograph is the front of 215 Kingsway or as it was first called, Victory House. This was built in 1897 so I do not know which Victory it was to commemorate. Later it was to become the Compton Court Hotel and finally it was converted to flats. It was said to have cost £8000 when first built. After having been empty for some years it was sold with three adjoining houses and other buildings in Langdale and Carlisle Roads in one lot, the intention being that the whole site should be redeveloped with blocks of flats.
