Many people venture to the Grahamstown market that is held each Saturday morning; take a minute to step back in time and picture what the street used to look like.
You can use the street directories to see what shops were in the street or check out the business list
The photo below is taken from the Pollen street & Pahau Street Intersect, looking North. On the right just out of view is the Picture Theatre and Junction Hotel. Further down to Battson's Plumbing shop (still there today) and further down to shops such as Charles Palmer's Confectionery Shop. On the left hand side you can see the Salvation Army Barracks
