Summary expansion
Covent Garden once held the quintessential farmer's market. In over 150 photos, Clive Boursnell documents the era that ended when the stalls moved out of the garden. This beautiful book presents portraits of the people who worked and shopped at the markets and also captures the distinctive character of the streets and architecture though every season. The book also includes faithfully transcribed interviews with the people who knew the market best: the porters, stallholders, and flower sellers
