Antique billiards table restoration
Images taken during restoration of a 10ft antique billiards table by Burroughes and Watts. We are stripping off the old polish before repolishing the table. More images will follow as the restoration progresses.
Look what we found on the back of one piece: A label from 1957 saying ‘Streatham. Darby and Joan’ Presumably the table was restored/re-covered for this club in 1957. A fascinating piece of history!
Watch a Pathe film about the original Darby and Joan club in Streatham, opened in 1942 here, beleived to be the first club of its kind for the Pensioners in the area: Darby and Joan Club Streatham 1942
