  1. I was born and lived around the corner from De Marco. Great ice cream and a great family. I remember a homeless man who was given an ice cream every day. I have very fond memories of that period of time.

  2. I use to stop off for an great slice of Cheesecake on my way back home, after visiting Manzes Pie and Mash shop in Holloway Road (Archway) both these places were brilliant back in the 60’s, Great Italian family run business, I’m sorry to see the pictures looked very run down and shabby unlike the early days.
