Chapel Market in Angel Islington in north London, about three blocks from our flat.  Circa 1903. Chapel Market is one of London's oldest continously-operating street markets. Notice the shop on the left named "J. Sainsbury's". This was the predecessor to Sainsbury's, which is now one of the largest grocery store chains in the UK.

Chapel Market today, taken from the same vantage point:
