Convenience Store - Leonard Neumann




Convenience Store in a London Train Station.This lady was catering to the Indian commuters, selling all sorts of spices as well as candies and fruit juices from India I think this photograph has a very 1930`s feel to it.

A hole in the wall shop and packed to the rafters. Not sure which station this one is, but there are similar shops all over the tube network. Nearly all are run by Indian or Pakistani families (hence the Rubicon Mango and Passion Fruit juices). Funnily enough, this also reminds me of a street vendor in Bombay...is it in fact a universal format?

Another excellent slice of life picture. The woman's profile emerging from behind the sweets and snacks creates an interesting punctum.
