Daily Photo: 10/04/2012 – Classic Greenwich Theatre posters inside Silver Street Studios

Silver Street Studios

I was lucky enough to get a look inside number 4 Nevada Street last week where there’s a great stash of vintage Greenwich Theatre posters.

Enter the Silver Street Studios, inspired by Nevada Street’s former name, and two things quickly strike you: the signs on the walls – amazing posters for old shows featuring (now) household names – and the signs for Wall’s – this place was most recently used for selling ice creams to punters heading for the park which is just metres away.

The building itself – an attractive end of terrace just a stone’s throw from Greenwich Park – is being made available for private sale.

Anyone interested in the property should enquire at Sabo’s Newsagents in Stockwell Street.

    Any chance some of those posters could be for sale? I took the photograph on one of them & have always wanted a copy! My husband did the front of house pictures for most of the shows in those days – so all very nostalgic for me . . .

    I had the same thought – although you clearly get first choice(s) Celia!

    Sounds like it might be worth asking the Sabos…

    Yes, best to ask in Sabo’s although I think it will be a challenge getting them off the wall without damaging them.
