This case may be so well known as to need no introduction, but if people are in the market for visual aids, at left are public domain images of the Surrey Music Hall and Gardens, the former of which was the music hall that burnt down in Taylor v. Caldwell.
Since neither this nor the coronation cases are included in the casebook that I use, and since I am usually way behind by the time I get to this subject matter, this is a portion of the course that I teach entirely through Limericks.
- Taylor rented a hall like the Met's
For the purpose of concerts and fetes
When fire the hall downed,
The court wisely found
A way to excuse Taylor's debts.
