Market Harborough at night

My home town.

This image is a copy photograph of a postcard showing Market Harborough High Street, 1910-1920. Two key buildings can be seen in the picture:  Firstly, the building on the right is the Town Hall, built by the Earl of Harborough in 1788, a beautiful mixture of Classical and Venetian inspired architecture. The ground floor arcade was traditionally reserved for the butchers market and this building is now rented out for shops.

The Old Grammar School in Market Harborough, around 1920. Built in 1614 and funded by Robert Smyth, the Old Grammar School is one of Market Harborough's most instantly recognisable landmarks.   The beautiful timber structure was built on posts to keep people dry in times of bad weather and to allow the butter market to continue to be held. The Grammar School underwent a renovation in 1789, an extension in 1869 and a £30,000 restoration in 1977.
