EDITORS COMMENTS
This evocative photograph captures the bustling scene at the fried fish shop run by Polly Nathan in Middlesex Street, also known as Petticoat Lane, in the East End of London during the early 1900s. Mrs. Nathan, a Jewish businesswoman, is seen standing behind the counter, expertly frying up golden brown fish for her eager customers. The shop, filled with the aroma of freshly cooked fish and chips, was a popular destination for locals and visitors alike. Despite the success of her business and an offer from her millionaire nephew in South Africa to retire with a substantial sum of money, Polly Nathan refused to stop working. Her determination and dedication to her craft were evident in the long lines that formed outside her shop every day. The scene is reminiscent of the bustling and vibrant atmosphere of the East End during the Edwardian era. Customers can be seen sitting at the counter, enjoying their fish and chips with a cup of tea or coffee. Others take their orders to go, wrapped up in newspaper to keep the food warm. The shop's simple yet inviting decor, with its red and white striped awning and wooden counter, adds to the charm of this historic photograph. The image offers a glimpse into the past, showcasing the rich cultural heritage and entrepreneurial spirit of London's East End during a bygone era.
