This painting is probably depicting Bell’s yard, which was situated opposite the Market House. It has been described in the past as a yard leading to a block of slums where lower class people lived. Maud Button’s pictures are mostly of the old yards and gateways in the centre of the town. She painted prolifically in the early years of the twentieth century. In 1921 Button suffered sunstroke while on a painting tour in the Netherlands.
