Stench


“The pavement was impassable because of the piles of fish heads left by the stall auctioning fish.”
- published in the 1920s

In 1914 the West London Post published an article about the smelly stench of Shepherd's Bush Market. People often complained about the smell and flies. Nearby shops used spices to help with the smell. I was inspired by the graphic descriptions of the smell and created illustrations to depict the scene.
