Tivoli Cinema at Carlin How – 4th December 1914

A postcard view of the Tivoli Cinema at Carlin How; the day after the fire! It obviously collected a number of sightseers and mostly young people judging by this view of the day after; the Archive has been advised by Bill Kitching “the Tivoli was left derelict after it burned down and was actually still in use before the fire; it was effectively the community centre and had theatre productions as well. He and other kids would later play football in the space it used to  occupy. In this photograph there is a small group of three men in the foreground on the left in front of a post. The slightly shorter man on the right with his hand in his pocket is my fathers’ father Joe Kitching who worked at the pit  and the man to the left of him with his hands together was a Mr Bayfield who was the horse-keeper at the pit.”
