This picture from the early 1900s shows how busy Market Rasen’s high street was.

The wealth of trade in the town is the focus of the exhibition at Rasen Hub by the Rase Heritage Society, which can be seen until October 15.

The display shows a time when there were no supermarkets or chain stores, just individuals running small businesses relying on their skills and personal service to retain and gain customers.

Rasen Hub, located in Union Street, is open on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday, from 10am to 3pm, and on Saturday, from 10am to 1pm.
