Women buy crockery at the open air market at Bailey Head, Oswestry. They have travelled into town on the country bus. The original caption states that "the Bailey Head, originally the Bailey or outer court of the castle, is on Wednesdays full of stalls laden with flowers, pottery, Lancashire fabrics". Most women have shopping baskets, many of which are already full of the purchases they have made. In the background, a large hairdresser's is just visible.
