Thurstons Billiards House, Leicester Square - Bombed - 1940

The bombed out remains of Thurston's Billiard House on Leicester Square during the Blitz on London, WWII. The corner building was hit by a parachute mine at 3:30am on 16th October 1940. One of the player name plates being examined is that of the legendary British professional snooker and English billiards player Joe Davis (1901-1978). Thurstons was completely destroyed and several taxis parked outside were wrecked. Heavy debris fell into Panton Street, blocking it. Other name plates of top Billards players (pictured here) include: Horace Lindrum, Melbourne Inman, Walter Donaldson, Fred Davis and Sidney Smith. Date: 1940
