Anybody who has been to Brixton market of late will tell you that it is one of the most vibrant and exciting parts of London today. It has actually been around for over half a century now and this video captures some of the early magic of the place. Try to ignore the blatantly sexist narrator (although he does have a fine old school British voice in fairness) and marvel at how much simpler life seemed back then!
