The Old Market Place, Tain

It is not clear whether some kind of market is being held or a public meeting of some kind but the photo shows what the old market place was like. The arched and wooden gated market stalls or stances in the background used to be rented mainly by merchants, such as the Grocers, John Gallie & Co, who had other shop premises in the town, presumably to benefit from the custom of those attending the markets. These stalls were converted in more recent times and are now "proper" shops.

The pillar and railings in the foreground are long gone and the extra space has been used for car parking for the new shops.
