I remember it well. My Grandmother used to buy fish 'offcuts' and boil them up for her cat.....Kipper Herin!!! Sometimes it used to get 'lights' from Dewhursts....where I ended up as an errand boy around 1964.....No commercial cat meat then.

Beryl, do you remember my mum, Edith Hand, she worked in MacFisheries, Mr Jones was the manager, I cannot remember the year, certainly mid sixties. I can remember Mrs Busby, Mrs Nix as staff there. I remember Mr Jones lived in a flat at the rear of the shop, there was a door at the side, and an alley that led to the rear entrance. I remember well the little office you refer too, I also remember the small staff room under the stairs, and the back of the shop where the ice machine was.

As a young recruit at WH Smiths next door to MacFisheries, I well recall the removal of waste fish on, I think, Tuesday mornings. The smell in the High Street was horrendous!
