- Description: High Street, Shrewsbury, around 1650.
This view of a 17th Century house probably on the corner of the High Street and the Market Square, is said to have been taken from Owen and Blakeway's 'History of Shrewsbury'. It shows a heavily decorated half-timbered house with richly carved barge boards and a protruding semi-circular window on the left of the first floor. Similar houses extend along the High Street towards Pride Hill.
