' The World's Largest Market '
To most Londoners, probably even those who pride themselves on their knowledge of the lesser-known ' sights,' Club Row means nothing at all. Yet, as they will discover when they hear Miss Elphinstone's talk, this little street in Bethnal Green is the oldest part of a market where one may buy dogs of all kinds - from the aristocrat who sells on his pedigree alone to the family pet being sold on the eve of licence day - to say nothing of canaries, goats, bicycles, rabbits - Chinchilla and otherwise - tortoises, and any number of other things: all in an atmosphere as truly Cockney as Dickens ever conceived.
