The images show the area back when it was a fruit and vegetable market and were all taken in 1972 and 1973 – just before the market located to its new location in 1974. The photographs are now available to buy as prints and show a fascinating range of customers and city scenes: from sellers to customers to the kind of old fashioned gent shown in the image above.
Each print is sold as part of a limited edition of 100 and cost £45 each.

Truly a special piece for anyone familiar with this great city. This lomo art photograph of San Francisco was taken with a vintage camera, using film that is no longer in production. There are three prints of 16 x 16 inches available or other sizes can be made to order.
A larger verson of the famous image, featuring downtown San Fancisco with a view across the bay, was recently on display with RAW Artists at Cinespace in Hollywood.
Even it's creation, by hand in a darkroom with an enlarger and trays, gives this unique photo a retro aura and if you're as taken by this image as we are, get your very own on Etsy, for £82.51, made by Tara Holland. Prints are made to order, and will take a minimum of three weeks to arrive with extra costs for posting to the UK, find out more on the Etsy website.
