This advertisement is for ‘Walter Evans For Boot and Shoes of Noted Quality.’
The shop premises at 58 Market Place has always seemed to be associated with the clothing trade. It was built in 1777, by Beverley builder William Middleton.
By around 1840, the shop was occupied by Samuel Shaw, a tailor and draper. In 1886, the premises was taken over by Thomas Evans and by 1905 was passed on to another member of the family, Walter Evans, as seen in the picture.
In 1985 it was taken over by ‘Edinburgh Woollen Mill’
