Supper in a Hot Pie and Stewed Eel Saloon
Item #: 143
Source: Picture Post. December 31, 1938
Strangely it reminds me of the chicken and Shweps eatery in Sofia
Sadly those days seem long gone, pie, mash and liquor (parsley sauce for the un-initiated) or stewed or jellied ells was my favourite lunch instead of school dinners during the 1940's. All from a tiny Pie & Ell shop down Rathbone lane, Canning town, East London.
