12 – 13 Market Street

History of 12 - 13 Market Street

5/3/1897: Wm Henry Chapel Smith, draper of 13 Market Street was summoned for hanging a pair of corsets and a roll of calico outside his shop front so as to incommode passengers. P.C. Savidge said the things projected four inches. Defendant said “I have lived in the street 25 years and you have been in the force 25 minutes. 1 think you were drawing the line too close. I don’t know what we are coming to”. He said the bye-law was an injustice to traders. The Chairman said it seemed to him admitted that something projected beyond the line of the shop.
