Description:This image captures the bustle of business at Uttoxeter fruit market in around 1920.

Motor and horse-drawn vehicles laden with produce vie for the attention of busy shoppers in bowler hats and flat caps.

Each trailer is piled high with milk churns or fruit in wicker baskets.

Meanwhile, the Greyhound Inn offers a tempting retreat to the two gentlemen occupying its doorway.
