photoblog image Greasy Spoon!

Greasy Spoon!

 

For those who don't know, a 'Greasey spoon' is English slang for an eating establishment where the food is cheap & cheerful! This shot was taken in one such in Fleetwood in Lancashire where a damn fine bacon sandwich can be had! :-)

never been flowers in any "greasy spoon" I've been in, I notice that they are with the condiments, so do we break them off and sprinkle on the food?....

love the the light here, never ever would i have thought of taking the pic, great stuff. mal
Dave Carrington: The flowers are plastic & are the height of poshness here in Fleetwood, don't you know?! smile

DC I have sampled the delights of this wondrous establishment, you have captured an image full of nostalgia and narrative. I will be your way soon dear fella, will send you email when dates sorted.
Dave Carrington: Sounds good to me, Shoot..! smile

If that is ketchup behind the brown sauce then it is a great great image ... ;-0 [grin}

Dave Carrington: It's ketchup...

Probably a year past it's sell-by as well, but all the the better for it! smile
We'll need a pic of the bacon butty to prove that, Dave smile
Dave Carrington: Har! I ate the butty, so no can do: if you get up to Fleetwood, you'll just have to see for yourself, Tom! smile
Not been in one for years, I miss that smell of burning lardsmile
Dave Carrington: MMMM... chips cooked in lard, washed down with brown ale...I bet that's illegal in our 'health-Nazi' society... bring back proper grub!
