Flicker Alley

Cecil Court in London has a long and illustrious history. It was once home to the early film industry – nicknamed Flicker Alley. Providing shop front premises for many important early film pioneers. Today it is home to mostly Antiquarian Booksellers.

I took this photo when I visited Cecil Court on 09 May 2014.

This is my Haiku homage to this magical place…

There once was silence
Nitrate flickered to times changed
Lights dimmed, words remain


Cecil Court
