The Rembrandt Virtual Tour - Managers Office
We are grateful to the family of the late Derek Phillips for their permission to use much of the text and images from the website that was set up and run by him. Derek was very interested in local history and his community and a short biography can be viewed on the introductory page

The managers' office in 1943. The incumbent at that time was Mrs Long. Her chair seems to have been "borrowed" from the cafe!
The office was situated off the foyer to the left of the stalls entrance In later years this was to be the location of projection box 2

After the cinema was twinned, the office was located in a space created by blocking off a set of entrance doors on the left of the foyer. This shot was taken some years later, in the autumn of 1988, during the 50th anniversary celebrations. The "special edition" of the Epsom & Ewell Herald has arrived and Ann, the manageress, takes a break to read it though.
Note the cat sleeping in the in-tray, and the dough-nut and tea waiting to be devoured by the photographer (yours truly) .......and not a computer in sight!

Boring legal stuff relating to this page
As explained earlier the text and images for this page came from the website run by the late Derek Phillips. To preserve his work and allow ready access to it, it was decided to merge his local history pages into the Epsom and Ewell History Explorer website. Of necessity some minor changes to the text were necessary and the layout has been changed to fit in with the house style of Epsom and Ewell History Explorer but in essence the web page is Derek's.
