Users can search by name of venue or business (eg, cinema, producer etc.), London borough, address (ie. street name) and classification. The information used to build the database has come from contemporary trade papers and directories, newspapers, local government records, Board of Trade files, memoirs and London borough archives.

The audiovisual material which accompanies the project include plays, documentaries, audio clips and other useful teaching resources.
