I am translating a legal novel from English into Chinese. There are extensive description of trial activities. Could anyone provide the courtroom layout of Old Bailey in the 1930s or access to it?

Do you mean what one individual court within the building looked like? There are plenty of pictures on Google Images.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1AwV3vUyJYI - you'll need to get over the GFW, but this includes film of a mock trial inside the courtroom. I don't think the layout has changed much, so this should give you a good idea of what the courts looked like.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zMijvruC5WM this has a little bit of older footage.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o2LeKHYxe2E this is not the courtroom itself, but a 1920s recreation of it. It shows that it hasn't changed much.
