Inside the milk bar…

Annibale behind counter in the shopNonno Anni behind the counter of the milk bar – one of very few photographs taken inside. Great to see the milkshake machines to the right. It is difficult to decipher some of the brands of sweets, cigarettes and biscuits around the counter though I can see Mars chocolates {invented in 1932}, Violet Crumbles {first made in 1913} and a sign for Peters ice-cream {since 1907}.

Despite the long hours and many years without weekends and holidays, I can appreciate he was happy to put in such time and effort as it must have been so wonderful to have the milk bar and fruit shop after some of the challenges and having so little for many years beforehand.
