Undated. View of Kirkgate showing the Market Place in the centre, taken around the 1950s or 1960s. It is not a market day so cars are parked in the market place. Taking pride of place is the Jubilee Clock, with the Buttercross visible just behind. On the right is Boots Chemists. On the corner on the left is Lennards footwear, with further along from this Weegmann's butchers, a business dating back to 1869 which is still there today (2008). In the centre by the Buttercross is W.B. Moss & Sons. A car is parked in the foreground.
