A few weeks before the Empress Theatre opened, the ERA set off to Brixton to take a look at the building, the article in their 17th of December 1898 edition is a fascinating read as it shows just how much still had to be completed on the building, and what a chaotic state it was in so close to its opening. Theatres were being built all over the Country during this period and they were going up at a fantastic rate, the article shows what it was like to be there at the time, and how hard the craftsmen must have worked to get the building open on time.
