The pillars have outlasted two markets.Wonder what will happen to them when they redevelop the market and the Galleries?

Another good picture Jane, thank you.
Whatever happens in any redevelopment it is vital that the canopies are incorporated . We have lost so many features over the years it's important that we keep as much as possible of our heritage.

Nice one, again, Jane.

I must have walked past those pillars, 6 days a week, when I worked as a butchers lad at McAvoys in the old market hall in the early 60's.

Great times back then. Where is the atmosphere now, I wonder??

Good stuff, Jane....
