Description

Copy of a photograph of the shopfront of ‘F.COOKE, LIVE EEL IMPORTER'. It shows staff serving customers.

Eel-Pie shops were family businesses which opened new branches with every generation. In 1910 one of Robert Cooke’s sons, Fred, opened the Cooke’s seventh shop at 41 Kingsland High Street, Dalston. It is considered by many to have been ‘the Buckingham Palace of Pie & Mash shops’ and became a listed building. After closing in 1997 the shop became a Chinese restaurant ‘Shanghai’.
