Description (Object or Artwork): This photographic print shows the front entrance of Brighton Town Hall. A market can be seen at the foot of the steps. The ladder leading up to the balcony suggests that some construction work is taking place on the building. The town hall is a prime example of neoclassical architecture in Brighton. Designed in 1830 by one of the town commissioners, Thomas Cooper, the building was strongly influenced by classical architecture. This photograph gives a clear view of the Ionic pillars surrounding the entrance. The interior also followed a similar design, with numerous Ionic and Corinthian columns.
