Dimambro Ice Cream Shop - a Memory of Langley Park.
My great grandfather Vincenzo Dimambro and his brother Salvatore, had an ice cream shop and confectioners at Front Street, Langley Park c.1912/14. I visited recently, the shop is still there but not a confectioners/ice cream shop anymore. Does anyone out there reading this remember their shop and/or their ice cream? I would like to find a photo of it - it was number 31, I believe. They also had shops in Durham City and several of the surrounding villages from around 1900 onwards. Particularly, I am interested in their shop in Station Road, Ushaw Moor c.1914, if anyone has any recollections - or hopefully a photo of this shop?
