Description:A colour-tinted postcard view of Market Square taken from the end of Gaolgate Street. The Shire Hall, built in 1795-1798 by John Harvey dominates the square. On the immediate left can be seen the spectacles sign on Mummery's jewellers and opticians shop, since demolished and the site now (2018) occupied by Santander Bank. To the right is the Jubilee Fountain, erected in 1887 to mark Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee. It was demolished in 1934.
