Delivery lorries at Smithfield Market, City of London

Smithfield has been the site of a market since the Middle Ages, originally selling horses, cattle and pigs. In 1851-66 Horace Jones constructed a new market which opened in 1868 as the London Central Meat Market. Here, delivery drivers and vans for Danish Bacon pose for the camera.
