Flying the flag: Britain’s streets and homes decked with Jubilee bunting in spontaneous show of patriotism

Pie & mash is a traditional London working-class food, originating in London's East End. Pie, mash & eel shops have been in London since the 19th century & are still common in south & east London, & many parts of Kent & Essex. The shops may serve either or both steamed & jellied eels. M. Manze in Peckham have been serving this dish since 1902.
