I think Mario lived in Bearsden and I used to see him from time to time on Maryhill Road although its been a wee while since I saw him.One of my friends from NK school,Irene Milligan who lived round in Northpark Street worked in the cafe in the late 60s.It was certainly the place to be with the "In-Crowd".The place had a unique aroma which came from all the confectionery and fresh coffee.Does anyone recall Miss Polloks sweetie shop which was on the left hand side of Maryhill Road just down from the gushet?She made tablet which I still dream about and the shop had a million sweetie jars full to the brim.


A million sweetie jars ? Can you name them ? biggrin.gif tongue.gif

Ah don't remember Miss Pollock's masel - ah wis only 5 and a bit when we left Garscube Road - but ah've nae doubt ah swallied many a sweetie frae the shop. Ma sisters remember it well, and tell me that, during the war, ma Da used tae buy their sweeties there an divvy them up equally between ma five sisters and ma brother. Every week wan lucky wan got a wee box of chocolates in addition tae their sweetie ration, an it rotated tae somebody else the followin week.

Benny your sisters will remember her because she was quite a crabbit old thing and measured the sweeties out with a precision that would put a Swiss watchmaker to shame.That needle would never go over the 2 or 4oz marker.She had grey hair pulled back in an old fashioned bun and always wore a navy blue nylon overall.In spite of it all we always loved going there.If I was flush it would be sweeties then next door into the DIY shop for a model plane.

There were Jaconnelis in Paisley and Johnstone, cafe owners and ice cream sellers. As most of the Italians living along the West coast came from the Via Reggio region of Italy I think that it is possible they are from the same family.

There still are-I went to school with Sammy Jaconelli from Johnstone who runs taxis locally nowadays although when I asked him about the Maryhill Jaconellis he didn't know any of them and reckoned they may be distant cousins.
