More about this scene

At the junction of Gold Street and Bridge Street, with The Drapery to the right, this view looks west from the end of Mercers Row. Note the splendid 1930s period lettering of 'T C Palmer', the clothes shop, advertising its hand tailored clothes. Most buildings here survive, although further down Gold Street, around the Horse Fair, there have been dramatic changes.

An extract from Northamptonshire Living Memories.

Memories of Northampton, Gold Street c1955

That building to the left on the top of Gold Street is now H Samuel. The famous point of the elderly woman who won an award for Britain's Pride when she witnessed a burglarly and hit them with her hand bag. I worked on the right-hand side of Gold Street where that background building jutts out, corner of College Street in Quicksilver between 2003 and 2008.
