Something fishy

was in Petticoat Lane today, supposedly London's oldest market. I say supposedly, becaue I think some of the commercial food markets are older. This site shows most of the markets open to the public.

Tubby Isaacs dates back to 1919, so has been in the same place for as long as just about anyone who is alive. Sepia seemed appropriate. Oh yes, one last thing .... jellied ells aren't nearly as nasty as they look! Posted by Picasa

But where is Petticoat Lane? I remember Petticoat Junction, but no the Lane.

That a particularly British Thing. It IS Petticoat Lane Market.... but it's in Middlesex Street, E1. There is no Petticoat Lane. Bit like the way the name Featherstonehaugh is pronounced Fanshawe and Chalmondley, Chumley. Go figger. We don't care.
