Most people know it as "The Old Music Library", and in its latest reincarnation as a restaurant (what else in Brighton!) the smart dark-grey paint seems to render the Brighton dolphins over the door much more discernible. It was, in fact, built in the 1920's as the showroom for the municipal gas company; those being the days when coal-gas was still manufactured and distributed locally.
For several years while the Museum complex was undergoing the millenium £10M renovation it also served as the Local History Centre. This may be the first time the building has been out of some kind of municipal use. #Brighton #Brighton_Bits #Cote #Hove #Library #museum #Music #Old #Restaurant #Victorian
