WITH reference to Stephen Lewis’s article on the former market in Parliament Street (A crystal clear vision of York street market, July 31). The photograph on the right is clearly not from the 1880s.

Look for the Belisha Beacon, the car park sign, the type and style of clothing worn by the people.

If this doesn’t give you a clue then look in your own archives because this photograph appeared in an edition of The Press not that long ago.

At a guess I think it would have been taken late 1940s or early 1950s.

Terry McLaughlin, Leeside, York.

Editor’s note: the photograph referred to was wrongly captioned. It does, in fact, show Parliament Street in 1934.
