Eating and Drinking Establishment
Ice Cream Parlour
Formerly the site of the Royal Oak Inn. This was demolished around 1936. Then two shops were built - Moors Stores and Jaconelli's Ice cream Parlour. The ice cream parlour, one of three in Houghton, was run by Mr Diamond Jaconelli and his family. Ice creams were also sold from the company's ice cream van. The shops were demolished (?1960s) and Woolworths was built on the site.
