A Fish Auction in Columbia Market Featured Print

A Fish Auction in Columbia Market

In 1869 Baroness Burdett-Coutts paid for the building of the great Columbia Market (for fish) between Hackney and Bethnal Green Roads on the site of Nova Scotia Gardens, a squalid area of tenements and hovels and dust heaps. The cost of building the market was estimated at 200, 000. It was a philanthropic enterprise to make a clearance of the slum dwellings which clustered so thickly in the area but also to help the local people to have supplies of cheap fresh produce. Lack of support from wholesalers and small traders who preferred the open streets ensured its failure and it closed in 1885 and eventually became a bit of a white elephant and was demolished between 1958 and 1966"

Military tailor and in family in Bethnal Green Featured Print

Military tailor and in family in Bethnal Green

This is a room occupied by a military tailor and his family at No. 10 Hollybush Place in Bethnal Green in the East End of London. Weavers and tailors kept their rooms as clean as possible owing to the nature of their trade but lived in squalid and decrepit buildings run by landlords who felt no urgency to clean or renovate these slum dwellings. Here the tailor and his family toil day and night in miserable living conditions.
