    As a tourist, after taking a “ghosts of London” walk with the London Walks, and being somewhat disappointed (I would give it a 5 out of 10 rating although the guide’s theatricality did improve the sense of old ghost stories), it aroused my curiosity as to the other side of London and UK (the life of real people of the past minus the monarchy). The stories and pictures of the poor and middle class have more depth and inspire more admiration than the stories of the kings and queens who at times become boring and actually quite disgusting. I watched a Youtube video on the “City of London,” one in “Strip London,” and another show on the workhouses of the Victorian period which lasted until the 1940s. So the ghost walk which I paid for was not all that unsuccessful, because it lighted a fire to discover more history than meets the eye in regular tourist attractions. I am a sort of social justice type, and clearly want to know whose labor and lives added so much to this wonderful city. These pictures in this website added to my historical inquiry and are very good….. loved the markets and will be going to Camden Market to explore.

    Thank you for putting this pic on line ~ stumbling across it brought back memories of when I worked in the market (just to the right of the pic) nearly 50 years after this pic was taken. James Street looks a bit different nowadays!
