The book contains almost three hundred of those images, portraits of the people working and using the markets, the flowers, fruit and vegetables, the streets and architecture of the Covent Garden area and its distinctive character, through every season. It also includes interviews with the people who knew the market best - the porters, the stallholders, the flower sellers."--BOOK JACKET." ;
