Tubby Isaac’s, originally uploaded by neilclasper.

Closing today, according to Spitalfields Life. For the last ten plus years I’ve walked past Tubby Isaac’s jellied eel stall at lunchtimes, on my to and from work, and been able to see it from the windows of my office for much of that time too. I’ll miss it; that faded, squat icon of the East End and the Aldgate gyratory system.
What I’ve not done much of during those ten plus years, though, is buy jellied eels, so I feel I can’t grumble too much at its passing.
