Do you have photographs of life in and around the East End’s iconic Petticoat Lane market? If so, Laura Ratling at the City of London’s Community Engagement department would love to hear from you and they could play a part in an exciting project to revitalise London’s oldest existing Sunday street market.
Laura writes: We would love to see your photos of life around Petticoat Lane!
Petticoat Lane is the oldest Sunday street market in London today. We are looking for photos of the market and the life around it through the ages. Selected photos will be used in the designof the banners which are part of an ongoing project to revitalise Petticoat Lane.
The Community Banners project invites people from the wider community to reflect on both the past and the future of Petticoat Lane Market and the surrounding area, as part of the community engagement around the local developments. The Leyden Gallery banners, which the photos will feed into, form one strand of the project. The second strand is being developed in partnership with the Textiles department at London Metropolitan University, who have transformed over 200 creative contributions from community members into designs for a set of fabric banners for Wentworth Street. You can vote on your favourite banner using the link below.
