I picked up this great postcard a couple of months ago but somehow it managed to filter its way downwards in my 'share' pile, so I've only just re-discovered it. It features what I imagine would have been a fairly typical scene at the Petticoat Lane Clothes Auction, in East London, c.1909. For anyone not familiar with Petticoat Lane, it is a traditional clothes market in East London, not far from Brick Lane, which dates back to 1608 and is still running today, making it Britain's oldest surviving market.
