Market traders' and costermongers' cries at Romford market on a Saturday. Individual male and female traders' voices edited down from a forty-minute recording and cross-faded. Most cries are for fruit and veg, some are for clothing and footwear. Recorded August 2008. Sonic Studios DSM-6S/EH mics and PA-3SX pre-amp, Olympus LS-10 recorder. Part of the London Sound Survey collection at www.soundsurvey.org.uk.

    Fantastic! Using this for a family heirloom Christmas decoration called "Dickens Street" a 60:1 scale model of an old London street at Christmastime. THANKS!

    Took me right back to Petticoat Lane in my lunch hour back in the 1960s - not much has changed. Thankyou.
