Excellent find Nancy... the market looked well in the 80s.... The market Square is due to have some work done on it soon... I hope it is an improvement worthy of the town. Nice to see a picture of Ken the Rat Man.. we mentioned him a while back.

I remember the stall selling handbags brief cases school bags all leather, just by the number 30 bus stop as in the photo. In the 1950's I think the stallholder was a Polish man. We bought many items from him. Ann Bacon(Stafford)
