Walking around Whitechapel

Few shots from Whitechapel area, first is the chemist shop in the junction of Whitechapel Road and Valance Road, the other is in Bethenal Green road.

If someone wants to get the mood and feeling of Bengali community in UK or London, the best place to be is Whitechapel. This is one single place where everything meets its peak. The street market, next door Brick lane. Huge number of shops and residents of Bengali speaking people, proximity to the other Bangladeshi area makes it very unique place to be. When the Bengali community started immigrating to UK from Bangladesh, it was this area where many of them were settled. With time a lot of them moved to other areas and new people came in.

Enjoy the show!
