The guy in the queue in front wanted of me wanted Green party cakes, which were not part of the spectrum, so perhaps in the lead-up to the General Election, we'll see an expanded range. As Tri Porteur and companion lazed on the grass eating cake, we were surprised to be suddenly surrounded by Labour campaigning types (so, that's where they all are...) and we made our escape.
If you've not been to Oval Market, I do urge you to go. The weather was fantastic, and there was a great range of stalls.
Also, I'm very pleased to see that the Council have got the fountains (I never realised that's what they were) working again on that piece of no-man's land in between Kennington Park Road and the junction to Brixton Rd/Camberwell New Road. I do think though, that that whole patch could be grassed over and cleared up. With very little investment, it wouldn't be a bad spot for a small cafe/ice-cream seller, but right now, it just looks rather cluttered with a kind of abandoned bandstand/circular bench thing and a lot of concrete bollards and pieces of hedge:
One reader tells me that the fountains represent the site of public hangings. More on Wikipedia. The 1984 Oval Fountains were apparently designed by architect Georgina Livingstone.
