Summary A Toby in the Lane reveals the rich fabric of the East End markets, primarily Petticoat Lane, Brick Lane and the life which inhabits its streets. This is the story of immigrant communities, their fight for survival, reflected in sweat and toil. Intimate profiles of traders’ lives entertain, with stories of scams, tricks and banter. This is a fascinating and informative historical account of market history. Families who have traded throughout the generations on the market offer up a unique insight to the layers of history that up until now have been left untold. The story also traces the relationship between trader and authority in an often amusing but informative tale. A Toby in the Lane is a spellbinding, quirky and intimate portrait of life on the famous markets of London’s East End.
