Ron, The theatre memorabilia shop ‘Pleasures of Past Times’ is still open at 11 Cecil Court, the next alley down from the Noel Coward Theatre, not the adjacent alley. David Drummond is still in charge.

Just south of the Noel Coward Theatre there is a wide alley which connects Saint Martin’s Lane with Charing Cross Road. Halfway down the alley, on the south side, there was in the 1980s a wonderful old quaint shop which sold second-hand books and other memorabilia pertaining to theaters and to cinemas, as well as Film and Stage. I think that the pleasant man who ran it was named “David”, not sure of that. At that time, the stage door at the Albery also served Wyndham’s Theatre. There was a covered footbridge which connected the rear stage wall of the Albery with the rear stage wall of Wyndham’s about 15 feet above ground level. Anyone who had business at the stage end of Wyndham’s could only access it via the Albery.
