Does anyone remember Salford Market on Cross Lane?? There were some great bargains to be had. My Mum and I used to go on a Saturday in the late 60's

i might be mixed up but i think it was called the "Flat Iron Market".By the way,there is a "Flat Iron Market" in New York.I wonder if there is a connection?New York was founded by
the Dutch/Flemish,and it was the Flemish Who kick started the Industrial Revolution in Manchester.there is a big tiled Tableau of their arrival in Manchester in the Banqueting Hall of the Town Hall.

The Market I'm thinking of was at the corner of Cross Lane and Broad Street. It was twice a week but Saturday was the best day I loved listening to all the banter. Some good bargains too!!
