Mester, That was amazing.

I knew some of those people in the market and the stalls that they worked on. The best was the interview with my Uncle Bill and Aunt Maggie at the cafe.

Many thanks for this.

Joseph and Fred, Standish Video had that on a DVD rather than the VHS tape when first released, it also had the demolishing of the cooling towers on, not sure if it is still available as the last time I saw a copy was on the Just Entertainment stall within the market and that has been closed a while now.

A busy bustling Market Hall, so sad what happened to it and they call that progress.

I mainly buy frozen. Reputed to have far more vitamins and nutrition because of less deterioration.

Frank Ryding must be the last link between the old and new market.
And they'll still wrap up your newspaper on his stall.
Loved the video - thanks Joseph .
I've just realised that Geoffrey Shyrhane must have been the inspiration for Alan Partridge
