COLOUR PRINTED POSTCARD of the MARKET PLACE, BUXTON, DERBYSHIRE ... INCL. TOWN HALL, KING'S HEAD HOTEL, EAGLE PARADE & THE OLD CROSS ... POSTED IN 1907
Really lovely genuine antique & colour printed postcard, showing early image of the the Market Place in Buxton, which is believed to be the highest (regularly held) market in Britain. The image includes view of the 'Eagle Parade' on the far left side ... and on the right stands the 'Town Hall'; between the two buildings, stands the 'King's Head Hotel' and in Kelly's 1912 Trade directory it records that the 'King’s Head Hotel' was run by William Claude Hamilton. In the foreground of the Market, you can also see the old Market Cross and English Heritage have the following details recorded ... 'Cross shaft, on stepped base. Probably 15th century. Moved from former position at Cockerd to the market place in 1813 when the charter for a market was granted. The shaft which is now fixed in Buxton Market Place formerly stood in a field adjoining St. Ann's Stables, and was in all probability a wayside or sanctuary cross'.
This postcard was published as part of the 'Dainty Series' by E.T.W. Dennis & Sons Ltd. (of London & Scarborough). It has been used and was posted from Buxton, on 8th Oct 1907.
Please make sure that you view all of the images I have supplied, as I've included a couple of enlarged images showing closer views of the more interesting areas.
