Cooper's Brewery was formerly situated in York Buildings off the north side of East Street. The Cooper family were brewers in Southampton from the 1840s, operating at first from small establishments in East Street and Hanover Buildings. They appear to have moved to their much larger premises in York Buildings in the late 19th century. This building was of a distinct red brick and featured a tall chimney which was a familiar landmark in the town for many years. The brewery closed down in the 1950s, but the building survived until 1985 when it was demolished to make way for shops.
