Amazing what turn’s up!
Many thanks to Carl Watson in New Zealand for sending me the above photo of what was apparently Granny Parr’s chip shop and the Jane Little sweet shop. These old buildings were located on the corner of Market Street and Elm Grove. The buildings were replaced with a Woolworth store at some point and today most of the site is home to Hoylake School of Dance. I believe the photo dates back to 1914 when it was featured in an edition of the Hoylake Free Press.
Presumably the fish was caught locally and a portion of fish and chips came wrapped in newspaper …anyone feeling hungry?
