Brixton, 1947, queueing for horsemeat

Apparently you could still get it years later

Used to be able to buy Horse Meat in Brixton Market in the 50's and 60's. I remember my grandmother buying chunks of it and cooking it up for her dog. Was a staple in some areas during the war. Have had Horse meat steaks in France, rather nice.
