A Fish Auction in Columbia Market Featured 17 Aug 2004 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"

The Strawberry Trade - pottling

Engraving by Ebenezer Landells showing a rural scene with women pottling strawberries. Pottles were small, basket-like containers which would be carried in great quantities by women from Middlesex and Surrey, by foot, to the markets of London. According to the ILN article accompanying the picture, these women came from Shropshire and Wales each summer to perform the task, often making two round trips of a distance of up to 30 miles a day for a wage of 8 shillings

The Metropolitan Sanitary Association Dinner, at Soyers Sy

The first public festival held by the Metropolitan Sanitary Association in 1851. With thousands of deaths from diseases such as cholera and typhoid as a result of poor sanitation in the capital city throughout the 19th century, various reforming societies were set up to promote cleanliness and welfare. Charles Dickens was himself a keen advocate of improved sanitation and is recorded as proposing a toast to The Board of Health at this particular banquet
