A guess - about the time when the Rio was built, was that stretch of the Broadway built around the same time?

The Rio cinema was opened  in 1937, Sylvaticus,  I cannot remember when, so it could have been built then too.

It wasn't in the Broadway at the time of the 1901 Census, so definitely some time after.

Does anyone know when the Post Office moved from the High Street to The broadway? It was in the High Street in the early 1900s. There is a postcard showing this on Facebook.
