I'm doing the family tree bit and I have found out that my grandfather (George Banner) had a wet fish and fish & chip shop on Northgate Basford in the 1930's/40's (there might have been others in Birkin avenue and Bridlington St) and I was just wondering if anybody had any info about chip shops in that area.

I wouldn't mind casting a clout to a few folks on here, LOL. 

Oztalgian I thought that one was going to be a bit of a red herring.

Careful red, someone might "batter" you !

Oh my cod I used to see this girl who's Mar & Par ran that chippy on Birkin Avenue last time I bumped into her she was prawn again Christian?

Going back to the original post on this thread does anyone know why it was called "wet" fish, or did this mean fresh or not cooked?

In the 60's I remember the wet fish man in a van coming round our village on Friday's selling fresh Grimsby fish.
