I think the continual renewal of Redhill's town centre has erased most evidence of all periods. The earliest property is probably an 1850's chapel with some grander brick built banks, a pub and shop/office parade from the 1900/10 period. The remainder is from the 1970's to currently being built, even many of the 70's ones have come down. Only time will tell whether any will remain.
Back to the Art Deco.
The first an easily the most memorable building in Redhill is -----
---- the old Odeon cinema, "The Embassy" opposite the station, everyone knows it as you have to stop by it as there is a roundabout next to it. If you were asked to describe an example of British art deco building, this is it. Clean lines, a big bold Cruise Liner look with portholes. It is never going to feature in the worlds top 100 buildings but for Redhill it is as good as it gets. I like the vertical sign to the left.
Built in 1938 for Odeon Cinemas as The Embassy, it was designed by the Scottish architect Andrew Mather (1891-1938). Andrew Mather was a London based architect
