bow window pea and pies and sausage

by carole liversedge nee hopkins

i remember this little old house it was so dark inside we used to call for 1 sausage and a bowl of peas on the way home from the swimming baths.
the chap that served us wore a big striped pinny and being only about 8 years old would frighten me to death with his big booming voice.
well worth the spending money of 1 penny then i went home and had my tea well swimming was hard work.
next to ring o bells pub on commercial st stood a green grocers and they used to also sell game hares, rabbits,partridge all hung upside down outside above the window.
lovely memories,no cars people on the streets every day how i miss it.

A pea muff at the Old Bow Window
by: Mary Gelder (nee SharpAnonymous

I too remember buying a pea muff on the way home from the swimming club on a Thursday evening at Brighouse Baths down Millroyd Street.
To enter, It was step down in the dark interior onto a flagged floor, and the peas were served from a huge cauldron simmering over an open fire.
I had quite a way to walk home but I’d try to make this delicious treat last as far up Bradford Road as I could.

I remember this so well. The man’s name was Edmund he was very friendly and my sister could always be found here when she disappeared. We lived in Croft St just around the corner.
