butchers I think, always liked their pork pies

When we where working in the town used to buy five small pork pies
straight out of the oven for half a crown, tanner each, hot fat used to run out of them as you were eating um :smt114

These little piggie wiggies used to be part of the display in Dale's butchers shop window.

It looks like the shop with the Mansard roof became Scotts for a time.

In January 1980 'There it was - gone'

Then by 27/2/1983 a new building had appeared.

Great shots APPSO. Must say I prefer the look of the old shop fronts to the amusment arcade though.

There are other threads on Purfleet street but this is a nice picture of how it was. I posted this first in the Lincolns yard purfleet thread.

The High Bridge stood where High St crosses Purfleet st and New Conduit st meet. A fetid river full of sewage hence the saying about Linnets drinking the water
and liking it neat. Buckets would be lowered down from the houses along the river and used for everyday use. Not sure if I have posted this before or not.
