East London - Olympic Park

CCC Club Visit to the East London & the Olympic Park.

Roman Road Market. I found this fishmonger doing a roaring trade, I liked his expressive face.

These two guys were out on the streets letting us all know their views.

The left wing street paper guys.

Approaching the Olympic park, is there a plan to cleanup our streets around the park?

































What’s going to happen here?
Buildings along side the Grand Union Canal
just outside the Olympic park












Even more Graffiti






















There is no two ways about it, the park itself is going to be an outstanding advert for the best of British.
