  1. This photo brings back memories! There was a Kardomah in Holborn Kingsway, London - on the left hand side of the street walking down towards Bush House and the Aldwych. It was situated just past an office block that had once been the beautiful and enormous Stoll Theatre, originally an opera house, then a cinema, then a theatre with one of the last production being Kismet, before it was closed in the late 1950's, then demolished - an altogether sad affair and something that probably wouldn't be allowed now. But the cafe front in this picture reminds me of the Kardomah in Kingsway, although I wouldn't swear that it was exactly the same. I worked just round the corner in Aldwych and used to have my lunch and coffee breaks here in the 1960's. At that time, you could actually read a newspaper or a book in peace and quiet - now, the Starbucks, Nero's etc all play music, sometimes extremely loudly, which is a total turn off and in fact, quite absurd as nobody listens anyway. A pity Kardomah can't open a coffee shop in London again - it would be nice to have a Lyons Tea Shop too!!! Ah well......
