View from the Past
Up until the early 1970's, Sneinton Market was the place to go for absolutely everything. It more or less died when the Victoria Centre was built and the market moved inside. A small open air market appears once a week and a few of the shops are still being used. But on the whole it is a bit of a run down area & plans are afoot to develop it. In the meantime, clues still remain as to the various businesses that operated from the area, as today's photo shows; the fruit merchant company of J Pearson.
