Notes / History This picture provides an interesting insight into contemporary catering and entertainment. Apparently the Devonshire could provide "Celebrated Steak Puddings," a "Cup of Tea Straight from the Pot," and "A Thorough Good Dinner Within the Means of Every Working Man." Notice the posters in the window advertising performances at Wimbledon Theatre (opened in 1910) and Andrews Pictures, an early cinema show held at Nelson Hall, Merton.
