This walk joins two exhibition projects, starting at The Showroom with Uriel Orlow's Mafavuke’s Trial and Other Plant Stories and finishing at Cooking Sections' The Empire Remains Shop on Baker Street. On the way we will discover a medicinal plant garden reflecting different communities and their migratory backgrounds, the colonial history of some of the products sold at a street market and textile shop in the area, as well as the site of the head office of the Home and Colonial Stores, which first opened in 1883.
