Covent Garden flower market

Wednesday, 5 May 2010

I think these images by photographer Guy Boursell (found via the Ancient Industries blog) are just so inspiring with how distinctively English and old-fashioned they look. It is really hard to imagine present day Covent Garden with its mix of shops and restaurants once looking like this.
The dalmatian is certainly the perfect accessory for this dandified gentleman
All very reminiscent of the film, My Fair lady. Below is a great photo by Bob Willoughby of Audrey Hepburn and George Cukor on the set which recreated the Covent Garden flower market.
