Pie cart (1 o 3)

Pie cart

Patrons enjoy an early evening drink at Christchurch’s Hereford Street pie cart, around 1952. The pie cart (usually actually a caravan) succeeded the coffee cart as the night owl’s eatery, and by the 1930s was a fixture in most cities. It served steaming mugs of tea and coffee, and the standard fare was ‘pie, pea and pud’ (mashed potato).
