Broadway Market

Markets have also intrigued me. My grandmother sold loose cigarettes in Berwick Street market before the first world war. My father was born there in 1916.

I lived on Broadway Market in the late seventies and 80s. These pictures are Broadway Market Hackney in 1982, at the time of a major community action to prevent the then Greater London Council demolishing it.

See Stuart’s book for more photos from Broadway Market.
