INTERIOR: not inspected but the large interior space, with its paint frame, a large cast-iron frame designed to be winched up and down through a slot in the floor so that the artist painting a scenic backcloth can work comfortably at first-floor level, survives and is the earliest known survival of a separate scene-painting premises outside a theatre.
