Walthamstow, England. August 16, 2008. Turf Accountant Stuart Lambert takes bets amid the fury of greyhound racing at Walthamstow Stadium Saturday night. After a 75 year history the Walthamstow dog racing stadium closed as a result of diminishing profits and poor attendance. Lambert, who has worked as a bookmaker for 30 years, was devasted by owner's decision to sell the land for property development. "I'm feeling sick. This is the end of my business tonight," he said.
