The Peoples History of Petticoat Lane

A panel illustrating the history of the famous Street Market on Middlesex Street E1. The market has been going since the 18th century, primarily selling clothes and fabrics. It was originally called Petticoat lane as it was a good place to buy underwear but the Victorians thought this indelicate and renamed the street.

The panel shows some of the colourful characters associated with the market and patterns taken from the fabrics sold in the market through the ages.
