A bit about Leadenhall Market, London

The original market dates right back to the 14th century. We can, however, be pretty certain that it went all the way back to Roman times as it is slap bang right in the middle of Roman London.

The structure, as it stands today, was built in 1881 at the height of the Victorian era, and in true Victorian style spared no expense. Sir Horace Jones (who also designed Billingsgate and Smithfield market) was the chosen architect. He decided to go for the 17th century Dutch look accompanied by the very modern cast iron and glass roof to make it a wholly covered market for the Victorian well to do looking for the best in meat, game and poultry.

Over time it fell onto hard times, and I have no idea how it managed to avoid the wrecking ball in the 1960’s and 70’s but it did. The market’s final salvation came in 1990 when it received monies for restoration bringing it back to its glory days.

Currently, it serves as a weekday shopping location for London’s financial district. It features shops selling fancy goods, a number of top restaurants and pubs as well as pavement cafes. The perfect location for a lunch time or after work drink.

What is a giclee print?

Giclee is a very high quality print process used by galleries and artists for exclusive limited editions. This Giclee process uses 12 true pigment artist colours (ultra marine, ochre etc) rather than the standard four dye colours in normal printing, so Giclee delivers greater depth in colour, tonal values and no yellowing over time.
