Women of Roman Road [Gallery]

In celebration of International Women’s Day we’re tipping our hats to the women of Roman Road. Andrew Leo’s documentary photography captures a feel for E2 and E3’s real women. For more from Leo, check out our galleries at Colourful Characters of Roman Road and Life, Laughter and Liquor on Roman Road.

‘Unfortunately Joanne’s Florist is no longer in Globe Town Market Square, it was there for 25 years. This is Terri. She took over from the florist she was working for there.’
‘Karina and her mum, Globe Town Market.’
‘Irene at Globe Town Market.’
‘Globe Town Social Club, we got bought drinks all night in here.’

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Can you help us?

As a not-for-profit media organisation using ethical journalism to strengthen communities, we have not put our digital content behind a paywall or membership scheme as we think the benefits of an independent, local publication should be available to everyone living in our area.

If a fraction of the local 40,000 residents donated two pounds a month to Roman Road LDN it would be enough for our editorial team to serve the area full time and be beholden only to the community. Media is accountable to those who finance it. We want to be accountable to readers. Not to corporate sponsors, not to local government. To you. A pound at a time, we believe we can get there.

Support Roman Road LDN from as little as £2 – it only takes a minute.
