Victorian London - Markets - Islington Market

Islington Market, was intended to be upon a most convenient and extensive scale, to relieve that of Smithfield, for the sale of cattle of all kinds. An immense amount of money has been expended by a Mr. Perkins, but his praiseworthy object was defeated by the influence and intrigue of the city of London, and is for the present used as a laystall.
