By SlowSong
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.

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.
