A Hive of Activity at Smithfield Market, London, 1915

EDITORS COMMENTS
In this evocative photograph by Bedford Lemere, taken in 1915, we are transported back in time to the bustling heart of Smithfield Market in London. Established since the Middle Ages, Smithfield has long been renowned for its vibrant marketplace, originally specializing in the sale of horses, cattle, and pigs. In this image, a multitude of delivery drivers and vans for Danish Bacon are captured in a moment of pause, as they gather at the historic market. The cobblestone streets are lined with the red-brick buildings designed by Horace Jones, which opened in 1868 as the London Central Meat Market. The atmosphere is alive with the sights, sounds, and smells of a thriving marketplace. The deliverymen, dressed in their workwear, engage in animated conversations while tending to their vehicles. The horses, harnessed and hitched to the vans, stand patiently, their breaths visible in the crisp winter air. The scene is a testament to the industrious spirit of the time, with the deliverymen and their vans playing an essential role in the distribution of goods from Smithfield Market to various destinations across the city and beyond. The photograph offers a fascinating glimpse into the past, showcasing the intricate web of transportation and commerce that kept London's markets thriving. As we admire this image, we are reminded of the rich history and enduring allure of Smithfield Market, a place where tradition and innovation continue to intertwine, making it a cherished part of London's cultural fabric.
