RE: squire jacks
I started working for Squire Jack's fish & Chips in 1968, i was 15. After 2 years i became Asst. Manager until 1977. I worked at the Silverton Store, but floated to other Stores, Roselawn, Hartwell, and surrounding areas when needed. There were a total of 7 stores. The owners, Mr. Whaling Sr., Mr. Whaling Jr., and Mr. Guttman had their main office down stairs. Radio Shack was next door. Some times i still make the fishcakes, which are really good. Arthur Treachur's was no competition, But when Long John Silver's came along, it wiped us out. They went out of business. Mr. Whaling Sr., the founder, was the sweetest man i'v ever known, and was a great pleasure to work for!! I have a lot of good memories working for that company!!!!
