  1. tony foulds is the top man from lowedges on that subject,hes at the memorial most days
  2. tonys was owned by a top guy who i knew quite well,he owned several chippys inc the market,his family still have several all using his family homemade batter reciepe and cooking in traditional dripping ,he was a good man and his legacy lives on with his family traditions.
  3. yes i see no reason why not,as they only live in clean water
  4. thats a hard one to answer,went to bakewell chippy next to the police station asked for a fish cake and he said battered or breaded,large chips or small chips,sounded like a quiz,anyway said battered and large chips,then realised there were to many chips,but i am sure they were cooked in lard or dripping anyway they were nice,dixons in greenhill sadly bordered up now where top class,cranns are now a chinese,loved jack walkers end of broadfield road opp the pub they were good as well,he bought a bungalow at dronfield when he retired called dun chipping.
  5. the reg plate and if you still had the car would be great collectables
  6. yes hes signed jordan storey from preston until end of season and can play sat,hopefully a good un and young
  7. this is a duplicate can the forum remove please as it was a technical mistake
  8. nice victorian vesta,that one is a anchor for birmingham,i love collecting them,sheffield is rarer and london ,scotland is rare,but chester has no longer got a essay office so they and all silver stamped chester are now worth a lot more as you cannot buy it any longer only secondhand, but ebay has a huge amount for sale as do auction houses,i was lucky a few weeks ago,got a job lot of none silver and found one worth £160,as it was a rare brass one stamped 1861 by the goverment and they stopped stamping brass in 1870 for vestas,but like all collections you are for ever learning.

  11. we have several fish/chip shops in sheffield,i think they taste better ,also i like home made batter they use,i use several chippys like woodseats fisheries,the sheffield market and brendas , back of the moor and a big cafe/takeaway attercliffe road,just pass banners,maybe not great healthwise ,but the taste yum,yum,there may be others as well in sheffield.
  12. what a superb collection.i always think when i buy a vesta made in sheffield with the stamp,i say to my self,it might be for example 1890 and i buy it from london or scotland as a example,got you back home to sheffield, but i always think wheres the vesta been since it was made,theres one BIG EXAMPLE in 1895 a vesta made in sheffield by walker and hall about 300 where made and sent to london to a theatre to celebrate a show called CHARLIES AUNT,the vesta is a silver vesta with a in printed face of charlies aunt a story about a man in drag as a women,they gave them away on dec 21st 1895,these are rare,i got one from scotland,but where had it been since that cold dec night?,also love your tool collection ,it would look great in our museum ,did the firm make vestas?thanks for showing your collection thats something england has heritage at its best.
  13. theres also a question? chips and fish cooked in dripping or not? mines dripping for taste a chippy that makes its own batter or not,mines i prefer homemade batter salt &vinegar which first mine is vinegar then salt
  14. i think its great to choose a item to collect,as i said i collect vesta cases and they are made of wood,silver,gold,bakelite ect,so such a vary in cost,i dont collect to make money as collecting is often for the benefit of others after people pass,bit like planting trees,we plant them,for the future,but theres so many from stamps,coins,knifes ect and i am sure theres more of our readers got a lot more to say
  15. they are fetching good money at local auctions and the american market
