A stall specialising in the sale of dartboards. The market was originally founded in 1855 for the sale of cattle, but by the turn of the century the tradition of a street market being held there every Friday was firmly established.

Traditional dartboards (in Manchester it would be referred to as a 'log end') had to be stored submerged in water - 'soaking'. I presume these boards were made from some synthetic material that didn't need soaking.
