Hi all, I am researching my grandparents chip shop at 76 Buttermarket st, during the WWII years. It was locally known as Horne's chippy. Prior to this period, the premises was an Oyster bar. However, my grandmother, Ethel Ball was living there in 1922, when she married John Horne of 2 Dial street, at St Marys church. Does anyone have any memories of the shop, and in particular any photos? The premises was situated next to the Cross Keys pub, between there and the Salvation Army Citadel. That series is shops appears to have been demolished in the late 1950/60's. The Americans certainly made frequent visits to the shop. I expect it was something to do with my 5 aunts working behind the counter. There was a Chinese laundry man across the road. Any info would be gratefully received. Regards mimocuja
