The Seventies began with a post-Sixties hangover of radicalism and protest, and ended with Margaret Thatcher sweeping into Downing Street, signalling the death knell for Britain's traditional indus...tries and many of its ways of life. Nowhere epitomized this dramatic story more than Covent Garden market where the spirit of activism infused the local community when planners proposed to bulldoze the area and move residents out in the early 1970s.
