This ‘Artist’s Proof’ of ‘Martins Lane in the Rain’ by Mark Loman. Martins Lane runs from the High Street into Cathedral Close–it has also been known as Luxury Lane and Fyshe Street. Archeologists discovered that in the 15th Century, the lane consisted of a row of open fronted shuttered shops. Apart from the Ship, there were other traders in the lane including Mr Samuel Porter, who in 1830, carried on his trade of upholsterer. It was also the home of the only kid glove manufacturer in Devonshire during 1860, when W Adams sold gloves from 1s a pair. There were also silversmiths and sellers of Irish linen in the street. A streetlamp (In the painting) in Martins Lane, was lit by oil in the 16th Century. In 1817, the street became the first to be lit by gas.
