Beall & Co Cork Merchants at 51 Gardner Street, was established by T.H.Beall in 1883. Bealls produced any amount of items like place mats, bath mats and other quirky cork items like cork doll’s furniture and 3-D cork pictures. When it closed in 1983, the shop-front was dismantled and reassembled in Brighton Museum, where you can still see it today.
