Collins' Music Hall in Islington

(51.53685 -0.10273, 51.536 -0.102) 

Collins' Music Hall in Islington.

The music hall was a conversion of a pub called the Lansdowne Arms and was created by the Irish vocalist and music hall entertainer Sam Collins, whose real name was Sam Vagg.

It opened on Wednesday 4 November 1863 and was situated at the rear of the pub. Sadly Sam Collins only ran it for two and a half years before his death in 1865.

It had a very interesting subsequent history - too detailed for a photo caption - and burnt down in 1958.
