Middle Street was a complete row of shops in the centre of Queen Street. It was originally called the Flesh Shambles as this was where all the butchers shops were located. The block was demolished between 1898 and 1905. Wyatts (carver, gilder and picture frame maker), with the distinctive rooftop weather vane, then moved into Fishergate.The light coloured building with the gable end to the street was Snowden's Cafe, and beyond the cafe was Baldwin's the tailors (who later moved to High Skellgate). Beyond Baldwin's stood the Yorkshire Hussar - which survived in it's then form (set back from the new building line) into the 1920s. The city council had paid £17,500 for the other six shops which formed the block. As there was then no such thing as a compulsory purchase order, John Rayner held out for compensation, and his shop was the last to be demolished.
