In Photos: The Traders And Customers Of Columbia Road Flower Market

Columbia Road Market — one strip of London that’s guaranteed to be perennially awash with colour. We’re not just talking about the colour from the roses, azaleas and the like, that are sold here though — but the colour of the characters who sell them. Check out these pictures — from Funny How Flowers Do That — of the people who buy and sell at this Sunday institution.
