Old Ossett

This photograph from about 1900 was on an Ossett postcard and shows buildings dating back to about 1675. It was believed to be somewhere in the vicinity of Dean's jewellery shop on Bank Street. When this photograph was taken, the original thatched roof had been replaced with stone slates and the chimney had been modified to improve draught flow. The buildings were demolished many years ago, but this is a wonderful reminder how Ossett town centre must have looked in the 17th century.
