Strolling up and around commercial road in Shoreditch past pubs of old and Christ church Spitalfields, there are markets everywhere! Old and new Spitalfields, Petticoat lane, upmarket and further on Brick lane market. A hangover from the rag trade that used to be the main industry here many years ago. As you can there are still see plenty of “rags” even if the industry itself has died the slow death of ‘offshoring’.
