Hello!  Excellent site.  I moved to the states in '85 when I was 21.  Growing up in Barking was great fun.  Barking park, jumping on and off buses.  Playing in the bombsite at the end of the street.  Sitting outside a pub waiting for your dad and getting lemonade and a bag of crisps.  Vicarage fields fireworks on Guye Fawlkes night.  Saturday morning pictures at the Odean.

Went back a couple of years ago and wanted to cry.

Thanks for the memories.

Hi,

 

I am working on the 1950 census of distribution and note that Dagenham then  was recorded with 9 fish and chip shops taking between them £50,000

 

This meant that their average size placed the town second in a national listing of shops by sales size.

 

Have you or any of readers rany source which would suggest who operated such large shops

 

many thanks
