From 'Street Life in London', 1877, by John Thomson and Adolphe Smith:

"At the corner of Church Lane, Holborn, there was a second-hand furniture dealer, whose business was a cross between that of a shop and a street stall. The dealer was never satisfied unless the weather allowed him to disgorge nearly the whole of his stock into the middle of the street, a method which alone secured the approval and custom of his neighbours. As a matter of fact, the inhabitants of Church Lane were nearly all what I may term “street folks” – living, buying, selling, transacting all their business in the open street. It was a celebrated resort for tramps and costers of every description."

    Incredibly beautiful, perfectly composed. Reminds me of the Dutch genre painting of 17th century.

    When old furniture in a room is arranged well, it can make the room appear larger
