Drumming butcher, Greenford Road

This gentleman is, quite literally, drumming up business. It’s almost closing time and he’s offering some bargains. I’m amazed how many small independent butchers and greengrocers there are in the area, somehow they hold their own in spite of local supermarkets. The butchers of Greenford must have promoted themselves in this way centuries ago, long before advertisements in the local paper or flyers or mentions on the internet.
