Chip Shops

Peggy Greaves in my opinion was the best chippy in Jarrow.

Done with Beef dripping you could smell the place for miles.

Chippy was in Norham Terrace.

Was there any better?

Back in the 1950's you could get fish and chips for 1/1d (6p?) I remember being upset when chips went up to 4d because they were using new potatoes!! Smile I doubt if you could buy the paper they're wrapped in for that now!!!!

I agree with you Jarrowlass! They were good fish and chips, and very popular after an evening out.
