This feels like scaling the heights of trivial obscurity—but I may as well post since I stumbled on it…

Camden Council’s planning website lists an application from 1954 (!) relating to permission for neon signage. In the document titled “drawing,” the spelling shown is “La Continental.”

The letterheading on the “decision notice” document is the “Metropolitan Borough of Saint Pancras”—I must confess that it is news to me that such an entity ever existed! (Note that the “decision notice” is not the correct document—it is actually relates to signage over at the former Berkeley Cinema, 30 Tottenham Court Road.)

Thanks Lost Memory, ‘Continentale’ is the correct spelling, I will make amends above.
