One of the things I remember, apart from the two Portches fresh fish shops, is the profusion of good butchers' shops. Living in Sutton Court, we even had one just round the corner in Fauconberg Road. And there was one on CHR where it was worth going on a Saturday just for the stream of amusing patter from the little, twinkly-eyed Irish guy behind the counter. I remember once being behind a young couple when they ordered two large steaks. 'Ah,' he said brightly as he wrapped them up, 'so he's staying the night, then?' That butcher's counter was his stage, and he had a very appreciative audience evefy Saturday. I still see him occasionally on CHR, looking much older and somehow sadder. Happy days...
