One of the most miserable things about reading a magazine from 1971 is seeing such an inviting advert as this, and knowing full well you will never be able to visit. Kensington Market = dreamland for Sixties and Seventies fiends…

I always feel wistful when I see old adverts in magazines. It would be wonderful if it were possible to slip the mail-order coupon in the post plus a pound or two and have some gorgeous vintage-style dress turn up!
I will let you know when I perfect my much-talked-of time-travelling postbox… 😉
I’d pay quite a bit of money for an afternoon in that market!
I remember Kensington Market (now a PC World) very well, I used to buy clothes from Johnsons when they started with a stall there – and also the Great Gear Market on Kings Road (now a Marks and Spencers).
