I was driving down Stonefield Rd yesterday for the first time since the 1960s towards the Main St junction, and I noticed the cafe (and building) which used to be there on the right is gone.
(Where I first tasted ice cream with chopped up mars bar).
There is a nearby street named \'Valerio Ct\'. Is this in memory of the cafe long-gone cafe?

I left Blantyre for the USA in 1968 at age 18. Six years later I married my husband Bob, and we have two sons, Christopher and Jonathan, and three granddaughters. I earned a college degree and had an interesting career working for universities in Dubuque, Iowa. I retired in June 2014. The town where we reside is about 10 miles west of the Mississippi River. I returned to Blantyre often over the years, but have not been back since my older brother Peter and my mother Ann Ellis passed away 10 years ago. I will return to Blantyre soon because Scotland is always close to my heart. If anyone remembers me or the Ellis family, I would love to hear from you. Thank you.
