  • William Brewster (Bill) – the owner, is on the right in this photo. He was in partnership with his younger brother Alan Henry Brewster, who had a wet fish, poultry and game shop in Hoddesdon. This shop was opened soon after WW2. The fish is displayed on white marble slabs. Fish came from Grimsby, Fleetwood and Billingsgate Market in London. At the end of the war the brothers would drive to Billingsgate to collect fish, crabs etc at 4am and return to sell it to the public. Later, fish would come by train and was collected from Broxbourne station.
