To coincide with the launch of The News Chippy of the Year, we thought we’d give you a blast from the past with some images of chip shops past and present.

Of course some of these shops no longer exist, but some are still thriving and have quite different updated shop fronts today.

Get involved in voting for your favourite Chippy of the Year 2020 when you see it appear in The News, as we’d love to know your opinion.
