The Wheatsheaf RIP

John Ross

A book celebrating the life of the Wheatsheaf pub in London’s Borough Market, which has been closed to make way for the planned Network Rail extension. Shot by photographer John Ross, The Wheatsheaf RIP is a commemorative book of black and white portraits that capture the spirit of the local characters and regulars. From artists to barrow-boys, antique dealers to fishmongers, and doctors to villains, the eclectic mix of the people featured is testament to the unique nature of the area and of the pub itself. The book will be a ‘footprint’ left behind for posterity, long after the pub’s demise. All proceeds go to local charity, Kids Company.
