More about this scene


Caption for Aylesbury, Victoria Hall 1897: The Victoria Club for Working Men in the west corner of Kingsbury is another benefaction from the Rothschilds, in this case Baron Ferdinand of Waddesdon. A stone plaque over the entrance records this as a commemoration of Queen Victoria's Jubilee, 21 June 1887. The building is still here, now the Victoria Club, with its sashes replaced by UPVC and the parapets rebuilt in simpler style.
