Re: Only info I have been given........

The white elephant club located in Curzon street was started in the late 50’s by a Mr Victor Brusa, and was later inherited by his wife Mrs Stella Richman in the early 60’s, and was a private club which just included a bar and restaurant. Then in the late 60’s Stella leased out the upstairs rooms of the club to the "A.M. Casino” (which was not legally part of the white elephant club, but you needed to enter the club to get upstairs into the a.m casino. Owned/Ran by Tony Mancini). I could not find exactly how it happened, but sometime also in the late 60’s the A.M casino closed; and Stella used the upstairs for her own casino which was a now officially part of her existing white elephant club. The casino aspect of the club closed a few years later, but the white elephant club remained open until 1988. Later the building was used by (or became) Aspinalls.

Sure somebody could fill the gaps...............or verify maybe.
