Caption for Louth, Market Place And Market Hall C1955: The NatWest (left) has not changed. The Central Café (facing us, left) has gone, to be replaced by New Look. The accountants Forrester Boyd & Co at 7 Corn Market next door have been replaced by Hanson's the bakers, and next door is now the Louth Vision Centre. After the entrance to the Market Hall (1866-67) comes Lunn Poly. Long established locally, Pocklingtons the bakers began in nearby Withern in 1924, and have been here since 1996.
