Petticoat Lane in the east end of London on a quiet day. All the traders were probably still rolling out of bed after a night on the gin.

I used to love going there whenever I visited London. I seem to remember that Sunday was a good day to visit.

Interesting images. Inrigued by designertherapy. We used to call them tailors. Times change. Peter.

Does look rather quiet! Smile Great set, Chris, and rather like V2, with the old contrasting with the new Smile

I love to see this area again - my neighbourhood for a few years! You've captured the mood of the east end Chris.
