A special ceremony was attended by the Mayor of Harrow marking the 100th anniversary of the former Middlesex Guildhall.
The building, now the UK Supreme Court, housed Middlesex County Council when it opened on December 19, 1913, incorporating the geographical area of Harrow when it became an Urban District in 1934 before it gained municipal borough status on May 4, 1954, forming a stand-alone authority.
Mayor of Harrow Councillor Nana Asante said: “Harrow has a special place in the history of Middlesex and it was a pleasure to represent the London boroughs at the 100th birthday of the Middlesex Guildhall building, now home to the Supreme Court.”
The building was serving as a crown court when selected in 2006 as the home of the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom, opening in 2009.
As Middlesex’s neighbour, Harrow Council inherited some of its legacy which included silverware and art collection housed at Harrow Civic Centre on Station Road.
