Shelves: photography
Old Covent Garden is a fantastic insight into the world of the Old Covent Garden Market in the years before it closed. Boursnell takes us on a photographic journey through the old market, his photographs tell the story of the market as it once was. These photographs are accompanied by tales and memories of those who worked in the market. With the introduction by Ackroyd we get a great overview of the history of the market before reading about it in its closing days.
