A Little Bit About Camden Town
Camden Town came into its own existence in the 1790s. Until then, the area was covered by vast barren lands and fields, especially those to the north of Tottenham Court. The Fleet River which today is non-existent used to flow through the green fields. Along with farms and green fields, there were only two inns namely, “Mother’s Cap” (today known as “World’s End”) and “Southampton” (now known as “Edwards”). The establishment of the city is generally attributed to Charles Pratt, who was the 1st Earl of Camden. He was one among the wealthy individuals that settled in the city and so took part in the development of the town. He initially laid the foundation of developing the area that is situated on the east side of Camden High Street. His contribution is so immense that there is a street marked in his name, located in Camden Town. But the arrival of canals and railways changed the whole scenario and transformed the town into what it is today. The Grand Union Canal was completed in 1820, while the Euston Terminus was finished in 1837.
By the 1850s Camden had expanded into a metro town with the opening of the Camden Railway Station. Irish settlers arrived in Camden with the onset of railways and canals. The famine in Ireland in 1840s sped up this process. By the end of the 19th century, Camden Main Street was busy with buses, trams, and horse drawn buses plying on it. Shopping was always a hobby even then with a lot of shops and entertainment facilities available. Some of the important entertainment centres were Bowmans department store, Camden Theatre, and Music Halls. During World War II, bombing resulted in heavy destruction of the railway terminus and the area around Mornington Cresent. After the war ended, it gradually restored its former glory and became a cosmopolitan society with the Asians forming a large number of its population. It is due to this nature of its society that art, culture, media and fashion have developed in multiple measures in the city.
Camden is well known for its markets: these date from the 1970s or later, except for Inverness Street market, for over a century a small food market serving the local community, though by 2013 all foodstuff and produce stalls had gone, leaving only touristy stalls. Camden Lock market proper started in a former timber-yard in 1973, and is now surrounded by five more markets: Buck Street market, Stables market, Camden Lock village, and an indoor market in the Electric Ballroom. The markets are a major tourist attraction at weekends, selling goods of all types including fashion, lifestyle, books, food, junk/antiques and more bizarre items; they and the surrounding shops are popular with young people, in particular those searching for “alternative” clothing.
