Turn of the century in Belper’s Market Place

editorial image

As we approach the end of 2012 our minds naturally turn back to years gone by.

This rare shot , taken around the turn of the 20th century, shows a bustling Belper Market Place with “Southern’s shop” visible in the background.

Historians cannot be precise about an exact date, but if you are able to pinpoint the year or have any more information about the places and people in the shot please get in touch.
