Memorial Theatre(s) - Stratford on Avon

This memorial theatre was built in 1879 in honour of William Shakespeare, but destroyed by fire in 1926...
The new Shakespeare Memorial Theatre was built next to the fire ruin in 1932.

This postcard was sent on 17th August 1949. It says 'We paddled a punt to the amusement of all Stratford yesterday, and then saw Cymbeline... tremendous activity and much humour... On the dark side, but effective..."
