Street Names – A Thematic Collection: Trades & Occupations

NOTES: Not quite the children’s rhyme yet – “The Butcher, The Baker, The Candlestick Maker” (*) to start this collection off, but getting there. This thematic collection is about trades, crafts, occupations & professions; about the people, the places and the materials they use.

1: Brewing & allied trades

2: Tanning & leather working

3: Pottery, brick making & construction

4: Smithing & metal working

5: Fetching & carrying

6: Fishing & farming

7: Baking, cooking & catering

* “The Needlemakers” doesn’t quite have the same ring as “The Candlkestick Maker” in the children’s rhyme but will have to stand in as a substitute for the time being. The origins of the children’s rhyme (see here) are though very relevant to this collection of ‘tradesmen’.
