This Art nouveau building from the year 1899 was originally built for the "Old England" department store.

After the store moved out some seventy years later, the building stood empty for a long time and must have been quite an eyesore in the 1970s, 80s and 90s.

In recent years the building has been carefully restored, and now houses the "mim" Musical Instrument Museum.
