City Museum, Park Row
4th January 1942 View of the City Museum which was founded in 1819. The building on Park Row by Robert Chantrell opened on 6th April 1821. The museum was enlarged in 1861-62 with a new lecture theatre designed by architects Dobson and Chorley. An air raid in 1941 caused severe damage to the hall losing the whole frontage on Park Row. The museum re-opened with a concrete rendering and included a miniature coal mine. The museum closed in 1965 with the building being demolished in 1966. The site is now the HSBC bank (formerly Midland).
