Ice Cream Barrow
"I was in touch with Lucia Lanny, today. She
is Angelo Lanny's daughter, born 1927. She told me that this photo of
Angelo with his ice cream barrow was taken in 1922.
Angelo came to Scotland from the
village of Casino, near Montecasino, Italy, with his wife Camela
Romano from Ravello, a village near Casio.
Angelo first sold ice cream from his
barrow, getting the ice cream from Fusaros who had a shop in Duke
Street, Leith. Mrs Fusaro is the lady beside the barrow."
Thank you to John Stewart for identifying the location of this
photo as Duke Street Leith. John tells me that:
- he recognises the entrance in the background as being
to the Congregational Church Hall, Duke Street
- Mrs Fusaro lived in Duke Street. In this photo
she appears to have just stepped out of her house to the ice cream
