Jean Court in Bristol - between 1927 and 1934

from Living in the lane, page 4:

One of the rare treats for our family was a visit to the cinema. It was heaven sitting in the sevenpenny seats (Half price for children) and watching the organ gradually rise up to play to us before the film started. Most of the films mother took us to see were musicals.
