My Nana lived on Shand Avenue, we got our fish & chips and pop from this fish shop every Monday and Thursday tea-times and Saturday nights. The owners (Mr & Mrs Robson?) would tease me a lot, they made me giggle/blush.

We used to use this fish and chip shop every Saturday night in the mid 1960s, as shops nearer to where we were living, in Houghton Place, were closed on that night. I used to go for the supper about 10pm. and get back in time for Match Of The Day. I remember the couple who owned this shop. The woman was a blond lady and I believe her husband had a moustache.

This was our regular tea on a Thursday night. I moved to Canada in 1968 and for many years on Thursday I could still taste those fish and chips.

How fantastic to see this photo! The chip shop was run by my Auntie Mary and Uncle Harry (Robson) in the 1960s and well into the 1970s when they got moved to new premises near Disraeli Terrace as this area was redeveloped. I have very fond memories of being there after the wedding of their daughter Judith in 1966 - I was 5 years old and a bridesmaid. Their toilet was at the end of the street against the far wall which I thought was like something out of Dickens' days! They had an alsatian dog called Sabre which seemed to live down the cellar a lot. Mary only died in 2007 aged 93 - she was blond as someone above remembered. She was about 90 when I last saw her and still glamorous. And Harry did have a moustache - he died in 1995 aged 78.

I hope you 'Shandies' won't mind a septuagenarian outsider (i.e. an old bloke who lived near The Lyceum in Burley)adding his own recollection to your excellent thread. Though I too love fish & chips - & think of The Chiswick at Burley, Harry Ramsden's (as was) & Bryan's (as was... & where my Mum & Dad bought chips when they were courting)& even The Magpie at Whitby- my own recollection is of Shand Terrace. My uncle opened his first aluminium foundry in a house there in 1946. Does anyone remember it? I was about 8 when I visited & remember that the bedroom floor had been removed and that the flames from the furnace almost lapped the roof. He then moved his business to Great Wilson St. and finally to Meadow Lane, where his business is still located... http://www.rainwater.demon.co.uk/frame.htm Does anyone remember the 'foundry in a terrace house' or even 'Mr C' himself?

George Sanders was Cpl Sanders. His V.C. was sold in 2017 for £288,000 and is now in the Imperial War Museum. Cpl Sanders died in 1950 aged 55. I attended Prince's Field School directly opposite Shand Fisheries,across Jack Lane.On the opposite corner of New Princess Street was a sweet/grocery shop. Teachers from the school would send pupils on errands to the shop to buy milk or tea.

Happy times growing up at the fish shop. Remembering Mrs Laycock, her daughter Joan, and the lovely oven bottom cakes she used to bake, I can smell them now!
