Scope and content

Correspondence and related papers concerning the Mart of 1946. During this year the Showman's Guild and the Corporation had a disagreement about the tender system. The Corporation were keen to maintain it and the Guild wanted to change it to a block rent instead. As no agreement could be reached the Guild formally put the Mart 'out of order' and banned its members attending, threatening them with sanctions if they did. This series has correspondence between showmen, the Guild and the Corporation in the run up to the Mart as well as after as they attempted to settle the dispute.

Neither the tender forms nor indemnities appear to have survived for this year.
