    I, along with frontline81, have photographed the historic 1935 pictures of the regal cinema in wakefield. They are located on the back wall of Wakefield Weatherspoons if anybody wants to see them for real.
    I have tried to pick some photographs from my own recent explore to offer a comparison of how it has changed in 72 years.

    I hope its of interest for those of you who are into classic cinema buildings, they make an intersting comparison to the excellent 1986 shots of the cinema which are also on 28dl.
