Description:Mason's the cabinet maker can be seen on the far left of the Ironmarket, with D. Read, the grocers next door. The view is looking down towards the Municipal Hall which was built between 1888 and 1890, to commemorate the Golden Jubilee of Queen Victoria. During its time the Hall contained a Council Chamber, Library, Dance Hall, and School of Art. The Hall was demolished in 1967 and the present Newcastle Library now occupies the site. Tram lines are visible running down the Ironmarket as at the time tram services ran from Newcastle to Burslem, Chesterton, Hanley, Silverdale, and Wolstanton.
