Elli's florist, Holloway

March 8th marks International Women's Day. The aim of this day is to raise awareness of the discriminations far too many women suffer from around the world and of their struggles to end these, and to celebrate women's achievements. In several countries women are traditionally offered flowers by their husband, boyfriend, or father and in some cases even by their employers (although that person may still deny them the right to earn the same wage as their male colleagues). So if men around Holloway are looking for a shop where to get some flowers, why not try the one below?

This sign was painted between 1995 and 2000. Indeed the area code 0171 for Inner London only existed for five years. Before 1995 it was 071 and since 2000 it has been 0207.
For a sign that is so recent, it is rather worrying that it is already peeling off.
