More about this scene


Caption for Bradford, Manningham Lane 1902: This is one of the main routes out of the city. Behind the horse and carriage is the old Yorkshire Penny Bank (1895). On the left is the Theatre Royal (1864), originally the Royal Alexandra Theatre. This was a cinema from 1921 to 1976, when it closed and was demolished. In 1905 Sir Henry Irving was on stage as Becket. His final words in the play were 'Into thy hands, O Lord'. He died that same evening at the Midland Hotel where he was staying with his manager, Bram Stoker, author of 'Dracula'.
