Wrexham - High Street c1890

High Street. The building at the end of the street was the Town Hall with Town Hill to its left. The impressive Gothic building on the right-hand side of the street is the entrance to one of the town's indoor markets. "It is one of a small collection of almost A4 photographs my grandfather brought out to Australia with him. I am assuming it was around the 1890s, although could be the 1880s".
