The New Shakespeare Memorial Theatre (Royal Shakespeare Theatre since the 1960s) which arose from the ashes of the old theatre, was opened on April 23 1932 by the Prince of Wales. Whatever you think of it as a building, it has become one of the best-known landmarks in Great Britain, and a mecca for Shakespeare lovers from all over the world. In 2010, major reconstruction work was completed.  Have a look at some postcards of the building as it was.
