Once upon a time, there were no McDonalds retaurants in London.
Does it sound like a fairy tale ?
It might seem unreal to some, but it's true.

So where could a student eat cheaply in 1967?
There weren't many places. But I remember The Golden Egg restaurants where you could get a meal for a reasonable sum. They all had fake brick and fake vaulted ceilings and such, but what I particularly remember: the miniscule portions. I haven't thought about The Golden Egg for decades, but when I came across this picture, I remember always wishing there could have been a bit more on the plate.
