Butchers prepare meat for sale in Smithfield Market on March 14, 2013 in London, England. Smithfield Market, which is officially named the 'London Central Markets', has been the site of a livestock market since the Twelfth Century. Located in the City of London, the market's Victorian buildings were designed by Sir Horace Jones, the City Architect, and were completed in the 1860s. Developers have recently proposed a 160 million GBP refurbishment of the derelict western end of Smithfield Market into an artisan food centre known as 'Smithfield Quarter'. - high-definition photo for free download.
