Introduction
No 3 in this 1960s set. In 1860 a Chip Shop opens in Oldham, with Fish & Chips opening in London. One of very few foods not rationed in World War 2, sustainable fishing is vital now. The figure is standing in waves. The Friendly Fisherman piece has a similar but differently-made figure.

The Cod Father
A name play on The Godfather, the 1969 novel and later films of a Sicilian Mafia family in New York City from 1945 to modern times. The title is also apt due to the UK and Iceland’s “Cod Wars” from the 1950s-70s over declining fish stocks. After a compromise in 1976, Iceland finally won in 1994 when the UN ratifed Economic Exclusion Zones of 200 nautical miles.

 From 1920s, a 99 has soft ice cream plus one or two chocolate Flakes. The origin of the 99 name is uncertain.

 Traditional battered fish and chips on Hunstanton beach in north Norfolk.
