Market Cross, Ulverston

A Dennis postcard from the 1970s but apart from the make of cars the scene looks similar today. The post box has stood there since Victorian times.  The shop on the left is still a chemist although the shop to the right of it has changed many times since the dress shop it was in this picture.  No cars will be here on Thursdays or Saturdays because lots of market stalls will be set up on both sides of the street.

Walk down this cobbled street and postcards can be bought to pop into the red postbox, perhaps stopping off at the Sun Inn on the right on the way.

On Remembrance Sunday tomorrow the market cross that contains the name of the fallen of this small market town will have its poppy wreaths.

A beautiful street scene! The buildings seem so well preserved in this postcard! Love the facades of both buildings on the left!

Thank you for linking this to my Weekend Mailbox meme!

Have a great weekend!

Oh, and I imagine there's a nice bakery there somewhere where one could stop for a treat.

It's nice to know some things remain relatively constant!
