Market Yard Lynn Street

What we know about this image :

This interesting image shows the back of Lynn Street market. In the centre, quite a distinctive arch shaped chinmey can be seen. The photograph is probably taken from George Street looking across the yard which had apparently originally been intended as a cattle market. It became an area used as winter quarters for fairground people and a wagon can just be seen to the left of the white wall in the centre. The low builldings on the left were community wash houses used for bathing and washing clothes.

The decorated tower of Lynn Street market can just be seen on the roofline to the right of centre.
