An illustration from chapter XIX of 'London: a Pilgrimage' by Blanchard Jerrold and Gustave Doré, in which various London markets are visited. In this image, people are waiting for Billingsgate Market to open and Jerrold writes that: 'Market mornings in London present to the observer, classes or sections of the metropolitan community, who are only observable while the day is very young indeed'.
