Occupying part of the land sold by the Bath Land Co to Perfect Picture Houses Ltd in 1920 (described as "part of The Cherry Orchard") for the construction of the Oldfield Park Picture House - the Picture House was the first in Bath to change over to sound from silent films in June 1929.
Harris Cinemas then sold the land for this terrace to the builder Henry George Peaty (of Mount Rd, Southdown) in 1938 and the first owner (Norah Jesse Ball) moved in to this property in September of that year. At the time, her neighbours would have included Barclays at No28, T Wall & Sons (ice cream manufacturers) at No27 and the wonderfully named Premiere Gloving Company at No32.
By the time the Scala Cinema closed in the 1960's, the owner of this property was Charles Street. Some of our local residents will still remember Gavans confectioners being at No31 at that time, alongside Berkeley ironmongers at No32 and Mrs G.W Copp (fashion consultants) at No30.
