Scope and content

This picture was taken about 1912. On the left is the shop of J Beard where he ran a printing business and he was an insurance agent.
In the very centre of the picture you can see the George and Dragon Inn on the other side of the road.
Coming towards the camera the next premises are those of Goodman the Tea Dealer. These premises with raised to the ground in 1903 to make an access to Little Place from Cheapside which meant a carriage could go straight through Little Place and out via Lavender Square. The huge Ash tree is outside The Lamb Inn and local would say they were going to The Tree for a drink. The last vestiges of the inn were removed in 1960 to make way for the showroom of the Market Square Garage.
On the right, you can see part of the Town Hall including the fire insurance plaque on the wall in the slight recess.
