Subject:        Vic's Old Tate Globe

 Arthur Lindley writes (14.1896): "Don't the proprietors refer to it as
Shakespeare's Globe?"

They do. However the term is neither stable nor agreed universally
although that may come. Numerous articles - including some in "Around
the Globe" (the house journal)- use varied terminology. Comparison (by
serendipity originally) with articles on the "Tate Modern" suggested
that there is no parallel between the "Tate/Tate Modern" usage which is
very solid and that for the three "Globes" which is rather fluid. Hardly
of cosmic proportion but interesting but nevertheless. Possibly the fact
that there are two existing London "Tates" but only one Globe has a
bearing. "Old/Young Vic" also comes to mind as another example.

Best,
Graham Hall
