Lower Kirkgate, 1825, by John Horner. This drawing, published in 1835, also shows old houses prior to their demolition in 1825, heralding a period of urban expansion in the second quarter of the 19th Century. One of the half timbered buildings in the foreground bears the sign 'Bradley - Gingerbread maker, wholesale and retail'. (photograph courtesy of Bankfield Museum)
