Glamour & Neglect

A glamorous name and a fabulous reputation for wonderful shows, a night of pleasure and sites to be seen has not stopped another landmark building falling into neglect here in Blackpool. Still, there is something about this fading gem on Queen St that drawers the eye to the gorgeous balcony and I hope that before this season starts the owner will have brought the peeling paint, rusting railings and ‘nom celebre’ back to it’s former glory.P1310247
