Former Magistrates' Court: decorative panel
Former Magistrates' Court: decorative panel
This Art Deco panel depicts what policemen (now, I suppose, traffic cops) used to call point duty. A stern-looking constable brings a rakish car, complete with mudguards and a spare wheel, to a halt. In the background are a road sign and traffic lights, new at the time when the court was built, and the policeman's truncheon, defying gravity above his elbow. The message to motorists is clear: ignore these signs and you'll end up in court.

A £3.1m regeneration of the former Magistrates' Court was continuing in September 2014 and the building, which had been empty for ten years, was looking much sprucer than when Alan Murray-Rust photographed it in 2011: SK3536 : Former Magistrates Courts. Designed by the Derby Borough Architect Herbert Aslin and built 1932-4, it is Grade II listed: LinkExternal link . It is to become offices for start-up businesses and will also house a café and a local studies library.
