Re: Re: Smithfield Market – what’s the verdict?
I don’t know if there were any consistent terraces around there; it seems to mostly just a higgledy-piggledy variety of heights, widths and shapes – a bit like the Quays (were).
There’s an old stone underpass archway between No. 80 and No. 81, which you can see in the 1950s picture below. It’s obscured now by a big used car sales fascia. You can still see the uprights of the arch (see below) – it’s in the ‘Gibbsian’ style. If the buildings are to kept, this sign should be redesigned to show the arch.
