Description

This lantern was displayed outside Cooke's Eel Pie and Mash shop on Kingsland High Street until a Chinese restaurant opened on the site in 1997. It advertises the shops products such as jellied or stewed eels, and hot pies. The current restaurant has kept the art deco interior originally installed by Cooke which is now protected by English Heritage as a Grade II listed building.
