Helen, I am interested in finding out more about Mr Fugaccia as I believe he used to have an icecream parlour in Stronsay in the days of the herring fishing.Can you confirm this ?

Fugaccia had his ice cream shop next to WP Drevers in a wooden hut. His favourite saying was ICE CREAM CHEAP TODAY AND FREE TOMORROW E.S.
