A view down Market Street, c1880s. W Croasdale, Bookseller, Stationer and General ? is the shop on the far left. I suspect that’s Mr Croasdale in front of the shop, short white apron and arms folded; there’s another adult and a young girl stood in the doorway of the shop which is now long gone. In it’s place we have Clifford Smith and Buchanan, solicitors and estate agents, with its wonderful neo-classical columns and balustraded roof.
