Bondgate Millenary celebrations

Date: 1886

The picture shows the south end of Bondgate decorated to celebrate the Millenary in 1886. Bondgate Hall still stands. It was here, James I is reputed to have stayed on his journey north. All the other cottages have been demolished and new buildings erected, making a much wider street. On the extreme right can be seen the bow window of the shop once owned by Eugene Aram, the murderer (his name appears in the Average Rents Award previously stored in the strong room of the Town Hall); the three people in the middle distance on the right (two women in white blouses and a man in a dark suit) are named Robinson and they ran a milk round.
