In support of the campaign against Network Rail’s plans to evict local businesses under the railway arches, we’re running a series of profiles and videos of some of the traders on Atlantic Road and Brixton Station Road.
The traders under the arches in Brixton have many different stories, from the owner of Brixton Tools who moved to Brixton from Trinidad at 17, to Malek at Denmay Interiors and Humera Shafiq at S&S Textiles. They are a tight-knit community who rely on each other for support, gossip and friendship.
Here, Jose Cardoso talks about the wonderful A&C Delicatessen on Atlantic Road. This film is made by Brixtonite filmmaker Peter Barker.
