Shrewsbury in colour in 1959
There's no sound, but there is plenty of great colour footage in this 1959 film of the last day of Smithfield cattle market in the centre of Shrewsbury.

Click on the image above to go to the film on the BFI site.

I recognise that view! Opposite the Tea Gardens you visited on a past excursion.

Thanks for being such an attentive reader! You may well be right - it is certainly in that part of town.
