This is Shaw <i>Road</i>, Blackpool, now.  Look at the similarity of the gate posts, maybe even the iron railings ... but 41 is the other way round. So maybe nearby ??

The cornices above the doors are different from those in the photograph.

If you scroll right No. 41 is the second next yellow door you come to. There is a normal house next door of similar style, no room for billboard. So not Blackpool, at least not Shaw Rd.

It says 'Shaw House', that doesn't necessarily mean that it is/was on Shaw Rd/Dr etc.

Having looked at Royal Pavilion Theatre, Rigby Rd., Blackpool I don't think it's that one either.

For what itís worth  think it is number 41, any street anywhere and shaw house is the house name.

Is it a coincidence that Shaw is a district of Oldham, has the feel of a charity outing of some sort to me.

There was a Royal Pavilion cinema in Royton ( 3 miles from Oldham town centre). I've also seen a reference to one in Mossley ( 5 miles from Oldham), and there was one in Rawtenstall (21 miles).

Not sure what you mean by this. It is a poster for the theatre not the building. Do you mean you donít think the poster is advertising the Blackpool theatre?

It could be possible that the Buckley and Crabtree families from Shaw opened a boarding house in a holiday place. Blackpool most likely.
Then again, it might be nothing like this  ;)
