  • Because the Electric Cinema is owned by Germans, the building experienced frequent attacks. This shows the anti-German feelings of the British during WW1.

  • In July 1918 American troops relaxed by playing baseball in Hyde park.2000,000 African troops served on the Western Front during WWW1 but they were commonly restricted to labour battalion and only 40,000 actually saw active combat.I was surprised that troops played baseball in a park where I live.

  • White City hosted the Anglo-American explosion in the 1914. This was a magnificent production which featured a working model of the Grand Canyon and the Wild West shows. I am surprised that their were a production in the gran canyon and I the Wild West!

  • This is a fantastic website and the workshop I did today using this website was great fun. I like how this website is created and I shall look back at it for research. Thank you for this.

  • Eric Kennington joined the 13th Battalion, who were also billeted at White City before they were sent to France. As it was largely owned by German share-holders, attacks on the Electric Cinema were common. Bad feelings reached a peak on 9th October when a man named Frank Vennell threw motor oil all over the building. Several other men and women also appeared in court, charged with assault, throwing stones and banana peels, creating a disturbance. The cinema was closed in 1916. When WW1 started, the Suffragettes declared that they would suspend their battle for women’s rights in order to support the war effort.

    By Ektor Clark (09/06/2015)
  • The electric cinema was attacked lots since its owner was german. William Davidson raised ‘The Kensingtons’ to help win the war. When WW1 started the suffragettes postponed their act.

  • Electric cinema was owned by German shareholders.
    Frank Vennell grew a motor oil over the building on 9th of October.
    It was then closed in 1916

  • It was really interesting to learn about what was going on in the place I live during the war and thinking about what would happen to me if I were 11 during the war. There were so many fascinating things that I had never thought could happen which i later found happened in world war 1. Thank you.

    By Hanna (09/06/2015)
  • After war was declared, the Electric Cinema, on Portobello Road, was subject to frequent attacks and assaults by ordinary citizens, due to the fact that it was largely owned by German shareholders.

  • The suffragette party abandoned their objectives to take part in the common efforts. Interesting how wars can overrule even the most unshakeable people’s goals.
