View of Manor Street, Berkhamsted.

Taken from REX Cinema.

By John Halsey

This is a photograph taken in the late 1940s from the metal steps at the side of the projection room of the Rex Cinema, Berkhamsted looking towards what I think is Manor Street.

At this time my father Frederick Halsey was a projectionist at the cinema and we lived in the first flat attached to the cinema.

  • The Brownlow Arms was on the corner of Chapel Street and ( I think) Holloway street. On the Manor Street Chapel st corner was Wrights shop…where I lived…later Englands..

  • Many thanks for the update. Could not be sure what the road was. Was it the one with The Brownlow Arms half way down it.

  • The road in the photo is Manor Street, not Charles Street. The roofs of the houses that run across the bottom of Manor Street are in Chapel Street. The area has been much changed since this photo was taken.
