a wee story my mother tells us now and again when she feels like a laugh is,my father got a small bonus at work,there was only the four of us at the time.my parents myself and my young brother,(two sisters came along later)he took us all to the blysthwood cafe in maryhill road,placed the orders like a man of means,when the waitress ,who looked very impressed with the man who knew what was wanted left the table ,to get the order,my father then decided to look at the menu ,when he realised how much it was going to cost got us to quickly vacate the premises.

Looking forward to seeing the pics stuarty smile.gif

I was born in Northpark St. 1930 I must have been 4 maybe 5 years I can remember my Sister taking me to Jacconelli's for a big jug of hot peas, you could also get pea bray, in those days the Family lived in the back of the shop I can still see that big black pot on the stove that might have been an old range

Hi Agnes and Robert Do you remember on the right hand side of Northpark St as you walked towards Maryhill Road, above some of the closes (I think you call it Lintels ) etched in to the Stone-work was the matings of Cock and Hen birds 1 The Coo-ing of the birds..2 The Mating of the birds 3 The Hen with eggs and, 4 the chicks in the nest. I was always wanting to take the photos of these closes but I did not have a camera then, I passed these closes most nights as I stayed in Kirkland St for a,bout 18 months coming from Sunnylaw St along Panmure St Etc! Cheers Flim

I remember going down to D'Jaconelli's on a Sunday afternoon from my granny's in Springbank Street in the 60's. In those days you could take your own dish in to be filled with their delicious ice cream and topped with raspberry sauce and chocolate vermicceli..yum. smile.gif

I believe Mario sold the shop when he retired, but his sons now run the chip shop next door.

The sons sold the chip shop and have moved up Maryhill Rd just passed the Elephant and Bugle, selling both ice-cream and fish and chips. The cafe at Queens X is still called Jaconelli's and they still sell Jaconelli's ice-cream as part of the deal when Mr J retired and sold the cafe. biggrin.gif

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 were /are Jaconellis in Shettleston. There is a Tony Jaconelli who is connected to Shettleston Historical Society( sorry if I have the name wrong).

I do not know about Viareggio but many Italians in Shettleston were from Monte Cassino and district.

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.

I remember miss Pollocks well. Used to go there to get polly pastils for my granma. I was a frequent visitor to the Davidson opticians for to get my glasses repaired or renewed. They had a big photo of the painting Charge of the light brigade that fascinated me.
The jaconnelis lived up the close next to the shop for years. His sister lived there too with her family who owned the melrose cafe across the street from gairbraid ave on maryhill rd. Lola the daughter opened a hairdressing salon across from the barracks again on maryhill rd.Jaconnelis has not changed a bit. I was in last year for ice cream and also went to jaconnelis new shop just before gairbraid avenue for fish and chips
