EDITORS COMMENTS
In this evocative black-and-white photograph, we witness the daily routine of a dedicated proprietor at a Fish & Chip Shop in Morecambe, Lancashire, around the turn of the 20th century. The year is estimated to be circa 1901. The image captures the moment as the shop owner meticulously washes potatoes in a rotary hand-cranked washer, located in the rear yard of the establishment. The scene transports us back in time, as we observe the proprietor's unwavering commitment to providing the best possible meal for his customers. The potato washing tub, filled with water, sits atop a wooden table, and a large tin basin is used to collect the cleaned spuds. A pan and a few tubs are nearby, hinting at the various stages of the potato preparation process. The Fish & Chip Shop, a quintessential part of the British seaside experience, is a symbol of the working class and the simple pleasures of the coastal resort towns in England during the 1900s. The proprietor's focus and determination are palpable as he cranks the rotary washer, ensuring each potato is thoroughly cleaned before the peeling process begins. This photograph offers a unique glimpse into the past, showcasing the dedication and hard work that went into preparing the beloved British dish of fish and chips. The image is a testament to the passion and commitment of the shop owners who, even over a century ago, took pride in providing their customers with the best possible meal. Morecambe, with its stunning coastal views and rich history, serves as the perfect backdrop for this timeless scene. The photograph is a reminder of the traditions and values that have endured through the generations, making Fish & Chips an iconic part of British culture.
