Black & White imageUndated. Postcard entitled 'Top of Town'. It shows the High Street at the left edge as it joins Ivegate at the right edge. The man next to the gas lamp post wearing a waistcoat and shirt sleeves is standing at the junction with Town Street, also known as 'The Steep'. The junction with Silver Lane is at the bottom edge. The shop of Fred Chippindale, Boot & Shoe Maker is numbered as 2 High Street and advertises 'superior hand-sewn boots'. The symbol of the Crown and the words 'Royalty By Special Appointment' are proudly displayed in the window. Next door, to the right in Ivegate is chemist, Frank Hardman. At the top left edge the clock of the Town Hall tower is visible. The Town Hall was built between 1880 and 1881. This image probably dates from around the turn of the twentieth century.
