Of Cheapside circa 1890’s when it was used as a fruit and vegetable market, he asks and I quote

Wondering whats that place between church and mkt

It was of course The Old Exchange Hall erected in 1851.To answer this querie once and for all I shall post a couple of snippets regarding this ill-fated hall

Exchange Building 2

This was the Exchange Hall – looking from Cheapside toward Exchange Street, named after this building which was erected in 1851 at a cost of £15,000.

To the the left of the hall stood the original St Peter’s Schools, built in 1847, on what was then Craddocks Walk.

Below the old cellar head.
