Subject: Joe Ice - Joe Fashioni
Date: 10 January 2006 13:37:55

My grandad, Joe Fashioni known as Joe-Ice made and sold ice-cream from a cart in Southport in the 30's and 40's. He lived in Fernley Road in Southport which at the time was nick-named Little Italy. Next door lived the Ambrose family who also made ice-cream. We only ever had one photo of my Grandad with his cart and this has been lost over the years. I was just wondering if anyone new of my grandad or had any old photo? Regards, Gina.
