Post-Exam Part I – a bit more of London

This post documents some of my post-exam travel in London. I followed a strictly chronological order, so the geography is a little messy. I originally wrote a lot more than I did but eventually decided to be lazy and let the pictures speak for themselves, adding a number of captions here and there. Click through the galleries to read them!



Immortalised by Eddy Grant’s anthem about the 1981 Brixton riots, Electric Avenue is apparently so named because it was the first street to be lit up by electricity. It is the site of the vibrant Brixton Market, which stocks a hodgepodge of African, Caribbean and Portugese goods and foodstuff.


I rushed down after my last paper to catch the market winding down.
