Discover the colourful history of life on our High Street. In the late 1800s it changed from a quiet residential road, lined with large villas, into a hub of shopping and entertainment. The Palace Theatre delighted audiences with variety shows, cinemas showed silent movies and the fun spilled out onto the streets where entertainers and market traders vied for the crowd’s attention. The Museum is also exhibiting work by photographers Chris Dransfield and Jon Stephenson, who have created a fascinating photographic record celebrating the vibrancy, diversity and uniqueness of Walthamstow market today.
