Caption:
This less successfully registered colourised photo proudly 'Printed in England" includes Warren's Printing Office on the righthand side and was retailed at The Palace Cigar Stores, 46 Above Bar, on the left, behind the scaffolding, and adjacent to the Daily Echo office and printing works. Tobacconists frequently also acted as newsagents, ticket agents, and general stationers, providing a one-stop shop for customers on the move, whether on trams, bicycles, motors, horse-drawn vehicles, or on foot. The Palace of Variety Theatres (est.1872) along with the Hippodrome (Ogle Road, est. 1905) were the most famous popular entertainment venues of their day in Southampton.
