Brighton's very own Jaguar?

This building is in between the Royal Albion Hotel and the Royal York Buildings, not far from the seafront near the Palace Pier. I think this used to be a Jaguar car showroom because I think that little cat up there is supposed to be a jaguar, although some people think it looks like a kitten.

  • Actually I read somewhere that the cat was the trade mark of the architect.

  • Yes, Mike is right – this was a car showroom. I used to be in awe of it as a child, wondering how they got the cars inside! And I’ve always loved the cat.
