Over the years there has been much speculation as to where this scene was painted; bearing in mind that many of Lowry's paintings were, although taken from an actual place,
he would move buildings around to make the overall painting more pleasing.
Several people are sure that this is in fact Chesterfield market place in Derbyshire; however it is probably much more likely to be one of the small market towns in and around Lancashire,
Salford perhaps or Mottram?
