Little houses at Hastings Museum

 The models include a battered one of this large building, in India -
which is connected to the Brasseys, a prominent local family, who donated an amazing room, the Durbar Hall, to the museum -
It had been installed at the back of their London home (24 Park Lane) as a smoking room that contained Lady Brassey's ethnographic collection. A special extension to the Hastings museum was eventually built to accommodate it.
