Seen In Whitby 2/7

Following up the general picture of The Market Hall in Whitby here is a collage of a few details from the building. Nathaniel Cholmley, 1721 - 1791, appears to have been a merchant in London. Jonathan Pickernell was an engineer who worked on the harbour and built the West Pier.

I like details - the fish sitting on the top of weather vane could hint to the fish market in the Market Hall as I saw in London- Old Billingate Market at the Thames. Nice the sea-gulls!
Brian Walbey: There is certainly a very good fish shop just round the corner from this building, and of course fishing is/was the main industry for Whitby.
Wonderful detailing, Brian. Quite delightful to see so much of lovely Whitby!
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Neil. I have featured two earlier series of Whitby with more expansive pictures if you find time to go back through my archive for 2011.
Some good details in this Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much John.

thanks for showing these features in such detail; it's easy to overlook. What a fine building and fish on top shows the area's rich fishing heritage.
Brian Walbey: A pleasure Alan, it is a fine building.
i like the use of the fish on that wind vane. nice collage
Brian Walbey: Whitby has always been a large fishing port Ayush hence the fish on the weather vane.
