Nardi's Fish and Chips

Other location

Detailed history

G Nardi ran a fish and chips shop at 181 Gallowgate, Aberdeen. His family was one of many recorded recently by the National Records Scotland 'Family Portrait: the Scots-Italians 1890-1940' project: http://maps.nls.uk/projects/italians/

In a recent Tillydrone reminiscence project by SHMU (Station House Media Unit), "Nardi's chipper was fondly remembered by residents:
'There were plenty games and crafts, which was better than going to school during the day for a good few kids. Others went to the Playcentre at Tillydrone School which was run by volunteers. Though there was Suzie’s chipper in Hayton, but most said that Nardi’s chipper was worth the walk up to Woodside. This was situated where the Canton House is now. Fish and chips was at this time regarded as poor people’s food and quite cheap.'
