A Chapel Street Market eel stall. At the eel stall at Chapel Street Market, which operated seven days a week close to Angel Tube station, live eels writhed in large tubs of water. People bought the eels to cook at home, once the stall trader had dispatched them with a knife. There were two businesses on Chapel Street, both in the name of Manze, selling hot stewed eels.
