    莎士比亚酒馆

    Pay wave

    你现在的位置应该是在柱子的后面,有一排商店。这个位置在以前既是伦敦最富的区,也是最穷的区。这个特点让这一带成为了整个18世纪伦敦的红灯区。你现在的这个位置就是当年全城最富盛名的妓院莎士比亚小酒馆的所在地the Shakespeare tavern。它的拥有者是当时伦敦最出名的皮条客,名叫Jack Harris杰克哈里斯。他意识到,这一片区域的贫富差距提供了很多不用的消费需求,于是他创编了一个考文特花园女郎的名录。这是在该地区工作的三四百名女性的花名册。 它详细介绍了她们的价格、三维、外观以及她们可以提供的任何有趣的服务。 这个每年出版的名录持续了大约四十年,但在17世纪90年代被当局最终制止了。

    现在请转身,面对您刚刚走过的考文特花园市场。 还记得苹果农贸市场(Apple Market)的标志吗? 这里变成了整个19世纪的水果和蔬菜市场,但是在20世纪70年代关闭了。 从那以后,考文特花园就变成了现在的样子:一个受游客欢迎的高端购物区。

    如果您正面向市场,请转向左侧,然后左转进入罗素街(Russell Street)。 您将看到前方约20米处罗素街(Russel Street)的道路标志。
