Market Place Early 1902
Photo: ron

Photograph showing three pubs? BULLS HEAD, WHITE LION and CROFTERS. I am pressuming that the building behind the tram is the Bulls Head? As the building lower down looks like a pub. If it isn't a pub? Then the pub behind the tram is the White Lion. The Bulls Head would be higher up. I think the photograph was taken in August 1902 to commemorate the Coronation.
