Welcome back

By mrswoolybill
11.30am, the door is due to open. We can see the coal smoke rising and smell the hot beef dripping. Davy's Fish & Chips shop at Beamish is back in business.
Thanks for looking,

I bet the smell is mouth watering. Super capture and love the expression on the little boy's face.

We normally start queueing at 11.15am. Arrive after 11.30 and you'll have best part of an hour's wait...

Well there's a new 1950s area being added where the fish & chips shop will server burgers...
(Is anyone else finding their own life story appearing in museums now?)
Thanks folks and good morning.

Do they do chips off the old block?

Please have this trophy - it holds two large portions of mushy peas. 😀 🏆

Ooh, yummy! 😋 I can almost smell it from here, and can still recollect eating those delicious chips we had, even though it was back in August 2014! 🥡👍

I hate queues, especially when I'm hungry and smelling food! So I'd have to join you for the early lunch Smile
Their fish and chips must be worth the wait.

Getting in early sounds like the best plan , looks like the people have spoken with their feet and rushed in line for the opening , great shot Moira

Lovely shot and it is that cheeky scamp hiding behind the wall that makes it for me.

Lovely image.

Now that sounds like PROPER fish and chips, Moira.

Vintage fish and chips, if at Beamish, but not vintage prices? In my youth the fish and chip shop was one street away. If you could not afford fish and chips, you could buy a "bustard" chips and mushy peas, or a white mealy pudding and chips, and all wrapped in yesterday's newspaper!! Happy days!

I can smell them from here. ( The chips, mainly )

Just hope they don't run out before you get to the front of the queue Smile

Not museums but TV dramas set in the 1970s ad 1980s...
