Jews arrrive in 1880s[edit]

Excellent article. Thank you! I just stumbled on an 1815 book http://books.google.com/books?id=_CdJAAAAMAAJ called, (ugly cut and paste): THE BEAUTIES of England and Wales OR, DELINEAT1ONS, TOPOORAPHtCAL, HtSTORtCAL, AXD DESCRtPTtVE, OF EACH COUNTY EMBELLISHED WITH ENGRAVtNGS. RT THE REV. JOSEPH NIGHTINGALE. VOL. X. Part III.

Around Page 151 is a description of Petticoat Lane. It seems in every other sentence is expressed dismay of how the place had gone to the Jews. Perhaps the sentence in the wikipedia article could be revised to say that the 1880s immigration was an extension of an earlier migration or whatever turns out to be the case.

Thanks again to all who have put this together. (fotoguzzi) 131.252.210.82 (talk) 12:24, 10 February 2010 (UTC)

err.. can wikipedia please explain how this comment 2nd passage in was accepted: The name Petticoat Lane came from not only the sale of petticoats but from the fable that "they would steal your petticoat at one end of the market and sell it back to you at the other" Up to the end of the war it was mostly Jewish since then very Indian and "boat people".

the last sentence is a touch racist no??? - Harry Jan 2014

East London, East Central London, or where?[edit]

Hi. I'm a little confused as to where Petticoat Lane should be described as being - "East London", or "East Central London". It is possible to build consensus on how we think this should be described, please? Thanks and best wishes DBaK (talk) 16:12, 28 September 2012 (UTC)

East Central because A it is inside the Congestion Charging Zone and B because it is in Travelcard Zone 1 not 2! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Justgravy (talkcontribs) 19:39, 28 September 2012 (UTC)

I would say Central London, without the East business. Simply south...... eating shoes for just 6 years 21:20, 28 September 2012 (UTC)
Kill The Extremist!!! Ahem ... I mean, er, interesting food for thought. Not what I was expecting at all. goes off to think. Hmmm. DBaK (talk) 22:17, 28 September 2012 (UTC)
So are we agreed, change it to Central?! Justgravy (talk) 16:53, 29 September 2012 (UTC)
No, sorry, I don't agree. I think it should be East London or the East End as it previously was. I think that Central is a mistake, and East Central isn't something I am yet convinced is commonly said. I was hoping for a consensus among more than three editors and I think it may be a bit early to close this. Thanks and best wishes DBaK (talk) 17:04, 29 September 2012 (UTC)
Sorry DBaK but its 2 against 1, either you find someone who agrees with you, or it gets changed to Central tomorrow, and any edit warring will be reported to an admin. Justgravy (talk) 23:31, 29 September 2012 (UTC)
This threat: "any edit warring will be reported to an admin" was wholly uncalled for. DBaK (talk) 09:59, 30 September 2012 (UTC)

Why all the men?[edit]

As this video points out, Petticoat Lane attracted a lot of male customers back in the 20's. You can see the same in the photos on this page. Does anyone know why? FOARP (talk) 07:46, 15 May 2013 (UTC)
