About This Item: 
This wonderful photographic record of the last year at the site of the New Covent Garden Flower Market, occupied since the 1960s before it moved to its new, more modern premises, captures the essence and heart of what makes a market: its amazing product--the exuberant blooms and foliage--along with the characters that bring it life as they work there or visit it, as sellers, buyers, and porters meet, trade, hustle, bustle, and share a joke. Simon Lycett bought flowers for his floristry business from this Market for more than 30 years, and it is an essential, and much loved, part of his daily life. The market traders have become like family. Each day there, throughout the year, is different, as the ever-changing seasonal flowers and foliage of spring, summer, then Fall, and finally Christmas arrive in the Market hall.
