The building is reportedly the former box office of the Victoria Grand Circus, 1871-1906. The interior is seen in SP3365 : Summerhouse with a past interior. The Circus occupied the former garden of the Victoria Baths at the end of the Victoria Colonnade by the River Leam, below Victoria Bridge. It was a throwback to the days of the early circus, a mainly equestrian entertainment, but was eclipsed by the touring combination circuses that performed in a Big Top with a greater variety of acts. The Victoria Pavilion, as it became, found intermittent other uses. Derelict for many years, it was eventually sold for 10 and demolished, to be replaced by a roller-skating rink. The site is currently occupied by the Loft Theatre.
