Great footage of the Elephant from 1926. Includes a scene at the Elephant Theatre featuring a young Tod Slaughter, Britain's most famous horror star of the 1930s.

Which view are we looking at exactly in the shot of all the traffic at Elephant? I vaguely recall from a local history lecture that Dunn's department store is on the site of Perronet House -- is that right?
