Leadenhall Market

The Interior of Leadenhall Market, London. Architect: Sir Horace Jones. 1881. According to TourUK.com, "Leadenhall Market, which stands on the site of a Roman forum, has been a food market since the Middle Ages. The market gets its name from a lead-roofed mansion that stood near here in the 14th century. At that time 'foreigners', being anyone from outside London, were given permission to sell poultry, and later cheese and butter, on the site."
