HI brisamar  I'm not Denis his wee brother that's me      The reason why i'm here somebody is filling heads full of bunkum on face book Denis keeps coming on to me asking me questions looking if it's right or wrong  The last one he give me was about two Italian ice cream parlours on the bottom off the Grosvenor road the answer is Baldini and Marcari now was that area the Grosvenor or was it Collage square south  The Grosvenor started at Mosie Hunters and Scallys facing it my Dows in my time    The lower half the door numbers dropped from Durham street    The bottom half came the Grosvenor road about 1907 I think

Sorry I forgot there was more ice cream saloons on the Grosvenor road  F Leighio was on the Grosvenor he had two shops there not at the same time just moved up the road abit  he moved in to 185 then J Morelli moved in after him     I have been trying to get in touch with John Leighio to see if it's the same person but still no answer Oh John's dad is Benny and the F is Benny's dad   They moved into Roden street about 1943 or about that The time with him missing he could have been in Newtownards that's where the family from but not sure yet

Sorry Colin. I posted the info about the ice cream parlours on the Grosvenor Road. At that time the Grosvenor Road started at the Granville Hotel (Now Juryís and before that the Ritz/ABC). Youíre right about the Grosvenor starting at Durham Street but the info about the ice cream parlours relates to the Grosvenor Road as we knew it.

I havent been on here for ages and was just reading about the ice cream parlours.  what about Tony Fuscos on the next corner of Devonshire Street, the opposite corner of Rogers Stores ( a great shop) my daddy used to give us a ten bob note to go to the sweet shop (next door up) from Tony's with mum's big baking bowl to get loads of Tony's ice cream with wafers and lime and raspberry syrup some bottles of cream soda, before that the sweetie shop for Butter Brazils,chocolate limes,butter mints,toasted torpedoes and god knows what else, but loads were bought for ten bob, oh coconut mushrooms too.That was on Saturday night  Then Sheila McConnell would come round and the TV would go on and we would indulge in all that sugar, its a miracle I still have all my teeth.My daddy had a sweet tooth, we all have but I usually only have some choccy at the weekend.Oh he loved wee buns too. My arteries are probably blocked as i had a stroke at the same age as my dad, he had a few really bad ones until they gradually killed him at 67, but he was a brilliant daddy to his two wee girls and Sheila was like a sister, she is about the same age as Margaret so they were more mates. I have had a lovely childhood but mum would take no backchat daddy wasn't strict at all, up until this bl**dy stroke my life was lovely although divorce wasn't fun or my hubby being at deaths door a few times, he is a good kind man to me.

Do you know (probably not but I will tell you anyway) I just cannot talk with a Belfast accent, I first got fed up with people taking me off, or trying to! Or they couldn't understand me but I have been away about 56 years so it comes back a wee bit when I hear it. I still use some of the slang though and my man knows what I am on about!!

Nice to hear from you Lilian and read about your sweet tooth and happy memories. The post about ice cream parlours only related to the stretch of road between Durham Street and Fisherwick Place. There was none there in my time but they were there at the start of the 20th century. The NI accent appears to heard more on tv and radio nowadays. My memories of our accent is Z Cars. James Ellis must have been the first and I cringed because it seemed so out of place but people have told me they like to listen to it. As youíre living in Lincolnshire do you call your husband ďduck?Ē

Some people do like it and others donít Jimmy. I personally like all accents. Iím glad we all donít sound the same. Variety is the spice of life.
