Peter Valerio’s Ice Cream Parlour

Another bite sized chunk of Blantyre History

This photo shows the Cosy Corner Bar, McGarvie the Barber, later Jimmy Cleary’s Ladies & Gents hairdressers, Peter Valerio’s Ice cream Parlour.

If we go back to Peterson’s paint shop, on the right hand side of the Glasgow Road (Main Street) on the opposite corner stood the Cosy Corner bar.

Jimmy Cleary, Ladies and Gents Hairdressers, Glasgow Road, Blantyre
 Cosy Corner (I have to make a correction here!! in my last ramblings I said that the bar on the corner of John Street was called the Cosy Corner it was NOT!! it was NOT!!. It was called the Castle Vaults. CORRECTION APPLIED.)

Going back across the road after the Cosy Corner bar was one of the other three Italian family ice cream stores in Blantyre owned by Peter Valerio. Peter’s special was a double chocolate side covered wafer with his special flavoured ice cream (each of the brothers had their own type of flavour) he also did a great snowball ice cream YUM!! YUM!!. I sure did like that one.


Continuing the conversation between Thomas Dunsmuir Hartman in Chicago (known as TDH or Drapadew) and originally from Logan Street, Blantyre and Margaret in Queensland Australia on TalkingScot.
