Historical photographs of Leicester Market

For those that are interested, Leicester Market's website has a nice gallery of photographs from the 1930s to the present day.

I've got some jolly nice postcards of it too!

The Market seems to me to be one of the few constants in the development of the city over the last couple of hundred years. I noticed, as I walked through this afternoon, that traders are concerned about its continued future, worried that the Council has plans to evict them. Frankly, after the Bowstring Bridge debacle, nothing would surprise me about LCC.

I could not agree more. Both Leicester city and county councils do whatever they want to do, no matter what the residents views are. So much for democracy. My father and uncles fought against dictatorship in second world war .........WHY?
