Did Chaplin get the bug Here

Once the location of the Canterbury Music Hall and Mr Chaplin

Location: 143 Westminster Bridge Road, SE1

Description: This spot was once the location of 'Canterbury Music Hall', erected by Charles Mortin in 1852 on the site of an old skittle-alley adjacent to his Canterbury Tavern, alas it was destroyed by bombing in 1942.

So what is the significance...

Well a chap called 'Charlie Chaplin', who was the the son of music hall performers - Hannah, who suffered mental illness and Charles, who left her when Charlie was three.

And it was here that a young Chaplin used to watch his father perform, and where he no doubt got the performance bug that led to his own legendary career.
