The Great White Palace of Modernity

Marine Court, Hastings & St. Leonards On Sea
Built in 1936 and designed to resemble the Queen Mary ocean liner. With the lower floors representing the hull, the upper floors were built with wide balconies and at the end step back from the floor below to resemble decks, on the east side the floors are curved to resemble the bridge of the liner, it was even built with a ballroom and sundecks. You may not of been aboard an ocean liner but this was the next best thing.
