These photographs show the extensive clearance of many old buildings prior to the erection of the Sports Stadium, in 1933. In addition to a number of old shop premises in West Street, no fewer than 29 small houses in Little Russell Street, Little Russell Court, Kent Street and West Street Cottages were swept away. In this view can be seen the demolition of West Street Brewery, established here about 1750. The building at the back is the Palladium cinema. (See JG_01_217 and following)
