View of Newgate Market. Newgate Market was the principal meat market for London. Over 200,000 animals a year were butchered there, and it was difficult to pass along the filthy alleys around the market without bumping against the piles of greasy carcasses. By the mid-19th century Newgate Market had become a public nuisance, and with the opening of the grand new Central Meat Market at Smithfield, it was closed in 1869.
