Hot Pork Fat.



Hot Pork cobs with apple sauce and fried onions. Impossible to resist on a crisp, but cold Saturday morning as the aroma wafts down Queens Road ever intensifying as you close in and watch the knife slice through the tender meat. Even a vegetarian would struggle to walk past Archer & Sons, the butchers. Sean roasts a pig outside the shop every now and again. Maybe one he’s got spare, or a cancelled order. Whatever, its usually all gone by 2 o-clock. At £2.50 a cob its money well spent. Part of the business is hog roasts and it keeps him pretty busy,especially in the summer.

Pictured is Simon. Simon is, bizarrely, a hairdresser by trade, though has clearly given up on his own locks.

Yum yum, I'm getting myself up early on Saturday morning. But just look at that bloody disgraceful bus behind Simon's shining head. 'Local Linx' for God's sake. This is why we're fast becoming a nation of illiterates. I talked to a girl in the pub the other night who told be she was doing Eng.Lit. at 'uni'. I asked her what she thought of Thomas Hardy and D.H.Lawrence and she said 'Who?'.

Top photo....reflection of girl in window....the kind of ecstatic look of longing that you wouldn't have got from Alma Cogan!

Alma Cogan. "Sugar in the morning, sugar in the evening, sugar at suppertime. Be my little sugar, and love me all the time."

I used to listen to her, with Grandad, on Take it From Here! She was Mrs Glum!

I heard Alma on Children's Favourites Alois. Forgotten about the Glums. Jimmy Edwards and June Whitfield?

Mrs Combo would be happy with one of those. In Italy it's called "porchetta". Yum yum pig's bum.
