Thank you to John
Stewart for allowing me to reproduce this photograph of
Scappaticcis fish and chip shop at Henderson Street, Coalhill.
"This photo was probably taken around
1950s and 1960s
By the 1950s and 1960s, the building
had become Pompa's Billiard Hall. Mr Pompa was an old
Italian. He employed a bouncer for his Billiard Hall.
Since 1986, the building has been 'The
Raj' Indian Restaurant.
