Down and Out in Paris and London
Orwell's first work -- a sensitive and insightful description of the life of the working poor in Paris and the homeless in London. It is still very relevant today, and while aimed at the casual reader, it is of interest to the scholar and activist.
What was a nice Eton boy like Eric Blair doing in scummy slums instead of being upwardly mobile at Oxford or Cambridge? Living Down and Out in Paris and London, repudiating respectable imperialist society, and reinventing himself as George Orwell. His 1933 debut book (ostensibly a novel, but overwhelmingly autobiographical) was rejected by that elitist publisher T.S. Eliot, perhaps because its close-up portrait of lowlife was too pungent for comfort.
In Paris, Orwell lived in verminous rooms and washed dishes at the overpriced "Hotel X," in a remarkably filthy, 110-degree kitchen. He met "eccentric people--people who have fallen into solitary, half-mad grooves of life and given up trying to be normal or decent." Though Orwell's tone is that of an outraged reformer, it's surprising how entertaining many of his adventures are: gnawing poverty only enlivens the imagination, and the wild characters he met often swindled each other and themselves. The wackiest tale involves a miser who ate cats, wore newspapers for underwear, invested 6,000 francs in cocaine, and hid it in a face-powder tin when the cops raided. They had to free him, because the apparently controlled substance turned out to be face powder instead of cocaine.
In London, Orwell studied begging with a crippled expert named Bozo, a great storyteller and philosopher. Orwell devotes a chapter to the fine points of London guttersnipe slang. Years later, he would put his lexical bent to work by inventing Newspeak, and draw on his down-and-out experience to evoke the plight of the Proles in 1984. Though marred by hints of unexamined anti-Semitism, Orwell's debut remains, as The Nation put it, "the most lucid portrait of poverty in the English language." --Tim Appelo
Bum Fight in London South Bank
Tourists along the southern embankment of the River Thames in London gather in a circle around one of the city's fastest growing street sports — bum fighting! Local gangsters from the East End of London usually approach a couple of down-and-outs living under Waterloo Bridge and offer them up to ?20 each to have a bum fight on the South Bank. The winner gets some kind of reward such as a four-pack of Special Brew or a 3L bottle of white cider. Hugely popular with tourists and locals alike, crowds often bet large sums as to the outcome of the fight, and cheer loudly when blood is drawn or teeth and hair go flying across the hard granite paving stones. It's one of the things that makes London such an exiting and popular place to visit, with Time Out magazine listing it in their 2008 "Top-10 must-do things to see in London" guide. Police regularly patrol this stretch of the Thames, but are prohibited from placing bets themselves for fear of either abusing their powers or colluding with touting bookmakers to throw a fight and profiteer. The same goes for paramedics from nearby St Thomas's Hospital, who frequent the area. This stretch of the South Bank is often full of street performers during the summer months, so I wonder if any will be there for the Royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton? This spot overlooks Westminster on the other side of the River Thames, and I'm sure many people will be wandering around the whole of central London and the West End all day.
Columbia Road Flower Market, London.
Columbia Road Flower Market is one of many markets in Central London; a street flower market, it is located in East London. Columbia Road is a road of Victorian shops off the Hackney Road in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets. The market is open on Sundays only. Columbia Market was established in 1869 as a covered food market, by the philanthropist Angela Burdett-Coutts for 400 stalls; with flats above, in a tall Gothic building. However, a planned railway line (for the delivery of fish) was never built, and in any case traders preferred selling outdoors. The market closed in 1886, after use as warehouses and small workshops, the original building was demolished in 1958, although the remains of railings can be seen in front of the Nursery School. Sivill House and the Dorset Estate replaced the Coutts buildings.
