Pig’s Head and Pease Pudding
Memories of the butchery trade and meat in London before World War Two.
In the early/mid-twentieth century meat was more of a luxury than it is today. Food scares, health concerns and the rise of supermarkets have decimated the meat trade.
Taken from interviews with 18 people, including Mr Jones whose weather-boarded Wood Street shop is preserved today, Pig’s Head and Pease Pudding tells the story of eating to live, in an age rather different from the early 21st century.
