My article for the May 2019 edition of The Local is out. This month I clear up two errors that have appeared in a number of history books regarding the Coronation Hall (now Lizotte’s) in Morehead Street Lambton.
|The Coronation Hall was built in 1910, the year George V became king.||The Coronation Hall was built in 1911, the year of the coronation of King George V.|
|The Coronation Hall was built on the site of the Criterion Skating Rink/Star Theatre.||
The Criterion Skating Rink was built on the south-west corner of Morehead and De Vitre Streets in 1888. In 1892 it became the Star Theatre.
The Coronation Hall was built on the corner of Morehead and Kendall Streets.
