Market Place in the 18th Century

A detail from the engraving after a design by Leonard Knyff, of The Old Hall, in Bow Street, Guisborough, c 1708, and an image from "Turner's Early Sketchbooks, 1775-1802" by G Wilkinson, 1972: note the stepped plinth of the Market Cross, stallholders and customers and, in the engraving, the sign of the Cock over the inn door from where the famous artist JMW Turner made his drawing.
