I remember the Mayfair very well, as it was opposite my old school, St. Ignatius College, Stamford Hill, Tottenham. While I was there the college / church purchased the buiding and replaced it with a bland meeting hall. As some of you may know, St.Ig’s most famous “old boy” was Alfred Hitchcock. The Central Hall dated from circa 1911, when Alfred Hitchcock would have been a pupil at the college. I can imagine him looking with anticipation at the stills outside the Central Hall, just as I did some fifty years later outside the Mayfair. Colin Crickmay was still alive in the 1970s and very kindly let me copy his photo of the old Central / Roxy. The Mayfair appears to have been a total rebuild.
