Market Ground with Watering Trough


I'm not sure of the date of this photograph.

It is clearly of the Market Ground opposite the Town Hall as the White Lion can be clearly seen behind that gorgeous looking lamp on top of the old-style watering trough. It is a pity it could not have been preserved. It puts modern street furniture to shame.

Four Lane Ends


This is Four Lane Ends on Werneth Low, around 1910.

On the left hand side is a Quarry now used as a car park. Werneth Low Road carries on past the Hare & Hounds.

The houses are on Higham Lane which comes in from the right, while Joel Lane goes off at right angles.
