Description

Footage taken inside the Eiffel Café ice cream parlour in Belfast by the owner's son, Angelo Fusco, and also including exterior shots of the business against the background of street barricades during the Troubles. Sections of this footage were included in the Super 8 Story, 'Fusco's Ice Cream Shop.

Notes

Angelo Fusco was involved in his family’s ice cream and café business when he bought a Sanyo Super 8 Cine camera to film events as a hobby and “to let my children and their families see the way of life of their forbearers when they watched it back in years to come”. Angelo now has his home movies transferred onto video which he still watches from time to time. “I’ve had many happy evenings remembering bygone days. Knowing that they are personal memories, some are sad, but most of them are happy”.
