Jon began researching the attraction in 2012 after learning about it from a friend who worked at Poundstretcher – at that time, the tenants of the building. Over these pages, we present a number of Jon’s photographs from then, plus some older pictures that were given to Jon by the late Mervyn Gould, an ex-employee of the Scala Theatre’s owners, the Aspland Howden family; they are believed to have been taken by Boston’s Addy family.
