    Default Johnnie Gianellis Chippy

    Does anybody have any pictures of Johnnie Gianellis Chippy that was located in Islington? It was demolised to make way for the now derelict TG&W Union building. Gianellis was world famous, as many of the stars who played the Empire used to end out for a portion of chips, mushy peas and fishcakes. Johnnie with his brother Frank and his sister Marie, were well known characters in the area.

    A picture of the left side of Gianellis and one of Frank & Johnnie attached.

    Paul, haven't you got that other pic, the one with the Gardens in the background that causes all the 'aaaahhhh's in your film? There's a story on the scottie press site about kids damaging the Hannah May Thom statue that was in Standish Street in the 1960s and Frank was in the local pub with his mates who were alerted and ran out to chase the culprits. He was apparently revered down in the Holy Cross parish and was a main part of the May Queen procession organisers.
