Grainger Market, Newcastle upon Tyne, opened for business on 24 October 1835. The market was named after Richard Grainger (1797–1861), who plans to develop the centre of Newcastle became Grainger Town. These color photographs were taken by Jimmy Forsyth (1913-2009) and the back and white images by Robert Hope (died. 2001), who in the early 1970s took out a bank loan to buy a Rolleiflex camera.
