The photograph above is of the rear view of 53, Market Street, a substantial building occupied by Hannington’s since the 1850s. It has had many uses over the years, being a workshop, a warehouse for upholstery and woollens and a garage for hearses.
Soon after this photograph was taken in December 1969, the garages were converted to shops. The photograph below was taken in 2013.
Do you remember what shops used to be here? If you can help, please leave a comment below.
