Broad Street

If the boys who lived on Broad Street in 1911 came back today they would probably recognise much of the street. There were probably more shops then but the appearance of the buildings was similar. The cattle market had been moved away but there was still a sheep market. Other markets and fairs were held here as they are today.

This was also a place used for public gatherings like election speeches.
