Amazing ❤️ His work

The quintessential English poet of the 20th century, the fact that he's easy to read doesn't detract from his genius.
Bon Marche is found in the poem Parliament Hill Fields, second verse.
JB was my dads favourite poet. He once told me he remembers a poem by him with the line/phrase Bon Marche, the Electric Palace. Does any one know of any such poem by John Betjeman?
