As a small child, in the 1960's we took part in annual dance competitions at the Peoples Hall in Albion Street (bottom end). It was certainly next to a furniture warehouse as the door was often open. Whenever I walk down Albion Street I often wonder exactly where it was.

The only obvious hall in Albion St in the 1936 Kellys is the Cooperative Institute, which was at 11 Albion St. From the numbering, the approximate position on no 11 is marked in red on the c1953 map below
