I'm sure her stew is great G  Our colette is a great wee cook
I would eat a big bowl now, as long as she puts plenty of carrots and parsnip in it.

Joe Fusco had a combined chip and ice-cream shop in the 40's on the Lower Newtownards Rd. just across the road from Montrose St. and opposite the methodist church,which was'nt there when Joe had his shop.I remember it was 6 old pence for a fish supper.

Yon lass is not an Italian. I don't know of an Italian settlement at Tullylisk. 8)

There was a chippy on the Crumlin Road , just before the Ligoniel Road turnoff and it was owned by a family called FORTUNE.  I don't know whether they were Italian or not but they did have a different colouring to their skin from our white faces!

Who,what, where,when and why,I think that says it all.

hello chris, the italians didn,t all fry chips , oh yea bacchis did on the oldpark near the park cinema agreat place with high backed cubicles and engraved mirrors as good as any in the west end. anyway H&J Marten brought over italians to lay the terazzo floors in the new city hall.some of them stayed and plyed their trade, keeping the process and ingrediants a close secret for many years. one of the families was called Rossatto.
