Manze's pie and mash shops

Categories: Commerce, Food & Drink

Countries: Italy

The Manze family came to Bermondsey from Ravello in Italy. Initially they were ice-merchants, and then ice-cream makers. Michele Manze branched out and opened their first eel, pie and mash shop in Tower Bridge Road. Four shops followed, but two were destroyed in WW2. The branch in Walthamstow bears the Manze name, but is no longer run by the family. This photograph shows the former branch in Southwark Park Road.
