Description:A postcard view taken in Bore Street, Lichfield.

On the extreme right is Lichfield House which was built in 1510 and is a fine example of a Tudor timber-framed building. During the Civil War it was used by both the Royalists and Roundheads as a prison. In 2003 Lichfield House was known as the Tudor Cafe and chocolate shop and in later years as The Tudor.

Second from the right is Donegal House which was built by the Earl of Donegal in 1730.

Third from the right is the Guildhall which was rebuilt in the 19th century, but has medieval cellars underneath it. Here the front of the Guildhall is seen with the carved heads of King George V and Queen Mary which were erected on the facade in 1910.

This postcard view was published by Walter Scott, Photographer of Bradford. It was franked in Lichfield on 6 September 1961 and sent to an address in Lincoln.
