I conclude with a couple of photos of the Tivoli as is today............... 


The Tivoli in April 2004. Could it ring to music and laughter again!!!


Backstage entrance. Shows the height of the rear stage doors approx ten feet above street level. The three arched windows allow light into the Fly's area. The three windows on the far left are the star's dressing rooms.
The double doors, bottom left, let into the electrics room, where there was a Mercury ac/dc Transformer, as used by many theatres and cinemas, prior to solid state transformers. When I joined the railway I was surprised to find
that the AC overhead electric locomotives used these delicate transformers, where noise and vibration and speeds up to 100 mph didn't appear to trouble them. Perhaps they weren't as delicate as they looked!
There was one at the Majestic cinema. They gave off a very eerie blue light that arced and crackled and were used in the old Frankenstein films, along with other electrical apparatus, to good effect.

Any additional information would be most welcome. reidcrcwdr@aol.com
