Welcome back to London on Day 20 of “28 Photos Later”. Drive carefully!
Today’s photo is “Still Rolling”. This market stall was resting at the edge of Church Street market, Lisson Grove, NW8.
What makes this market stall unique to London? If you look carefully, and maybe turn your screen upside down, you can just about read a name carved into the wood – Ellen Keeley Barrows, 33 Neal Street, Covent Garden. The Keeley firm made and rented out barrows and hand trucks to traders operating in London’s markets. I don’t think the firm still survives, but this old wooden market stall is still going strong.
