~~Meeting for members and guests interested in Street Photography, this time visiting Portobello Market.
Originally no more than a winding country path known as Green Lane, the Market took its name from Porto Bello Farm which was built in the area which we now know as Golborne Road. The farm was named after the town of Porto Bello in Panama, captured by the British from the Spanish in 1739, as part of the War of Jenkins Ear.
By the late 1980s, subject to a large amount of gentrification, Portobello Road went from being a run-down and shabby working class district to become affluent, fashionable and one of the most desirable areas to live in the capital.
Gradually, antiques have become Portobello Road Market’s best known merchandise, with Saturday being the main trading day. But, you can also find second-hand goods, clothing/fashion, household essentials, fruit, veg and other foods.
Enjoy the shoot and remember to bring a bag to carry your purchases home!
