This particularly fine photograph is a useful addition to the very old ones seen on the immediate preceding pages. Probably taken a few years later, it could have been at the time of the mid-1860s widening of Kings Road and the building of the first arches. The low squat building at the corner of Black Lion Street has changed in appearance and was occupied by Akehurst and Son, Saddlers, who were here in 1864. The large block of houses in the background are those in between Black Lion Street and Market Street. I have no information about any event attracting this number of people.
