Whitechapel, London. 1974<br />
The proprietor in chefs hat and apron buttoned up to his jacket to keep in place, stands outside his greasy spoon café in Brick Lane waiting for lunchtime customers. The blackboard dinner menu is almost everything with chips. Fish & chips 27p, Liver & chips 30p, Vienna steak & chips 28p, Egg & chips 18p, Hamburger steak & 2 veg 28p, Sausage egg & chips 26p, 2 egg & chips 26p, 2 sausage & chips 26p, Pork chop & chips 45p, Stewed lamb & 2 veg 30p, Steak pie & 2 veg 30p, and finally for dessert Semolina pudding for 6p.  The Vienna steak & chips, perhaps giving a clue to his nationality.
