Italian Shop in Liverpool

Postby jamiecapaldi » 28 Jul 2010, 05:53

I know Alessandro (alex - pictured) Capaldi ran these shops on Smithdown Rd, Liverpool, but during 1965, it was being ran by a G. Capaldi.

Can anyone Please tell me a Christian name and hopefully a connection to Alessandro?

Jamie,

A relative, perhaps?

I did a google image search: http://www.google.com/images?um=1&hl=en ... 64&bih=556

Clicking the image takes you here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/radarsmum6 ... 502891245/ where a commenter says, "I dont know if they are related but there was a Capaldi's on Smithdown Road close to the railway bridge in the 60's." Perhaps you can try contacting the commenter (who has a link to his own Flickr page.

Jamie, does the name Phil Bimpson mean anything to you?

He recently attached a comment, which may interest you, to the first photo in my previous post at http://www.flickr.com/photos/46773825@N05/4292743343/

Thanks for your input Carmine,
The shop on Kensington was started by a Antonio Capaldi, who also had a milk bar in Wavertree rd. His sons Ernesto and Armando then helped out.
I dont know if the Antonio is related or not, but i hope to receive any info on Alex Capaldi on Smithdown rd, or a G. Capaldi also?

Thanks!

Jamie,

Planning any trips to London soon?

If so, stop in at the BT (British Telephone) Archives, http://www.btplc.com/Thegroup/BTsHistor ... /index.htm where it seems that you can search through historical telephone directories dating back to 1880. More info: http://www.btplc.com/Thegroup/BTsHistor ... issue5.pdf

These directories are all supposed to be available at ancestry . co . uk (and ancestry . com?), however I am not sure how business listings might be handled. You can try searching without an account; perhaps something will turn up.

I have had a look at pictures of Smithdown on a lot of Liverpool sites, and they are very good pictures!
The nearest i got to 266 smithdown road was of Sefton Park Station Bridge in 1905. (attached)

I have also attached a picture of 266 smithdown in 2009, which was then 'Volute cafe/art' shop. It is now a property shop called 'Yakel Properties'.

Please can anyone supply me a picture of the shop or near it between 1930-1980?
