With the spread of suburban railways in 19th century Britain, working men often travelled considerable distances from their homes to the office. As a result, they could not go home for their midday meal. Some men took cold food with them, such as pasties and pies, but those that could afford to ate in cheap cafes and restaurants like Chatterton’s.
