Shows Nottingham Market Place from just west of St James' Street and the present Market Street looking towards Exchange Building in the centre of the picture. Names of shops and inns are clearly shown, for example 'Swann' on Long Row may refer to 'Swan and Sons' the drapers or 'Henry and Samuel Swann' grocers. Both the 'Maypole' and 'Black Boy' inns on Long Row are shown but not sign-posted. The pavements on Long Row and South Parade were constructed to help keep people's shoes and clothes clean.
