Cafe which has not changed in 50 years

These nostalgic photos show the inside of a historic cafe which is still open but has not changed – in 50 YEARS. Langside Cafe in Southside, Glasgow, first opened in 1920 and from the 1960s was run by an Italian family. Today it is still exactly the same inside – including the vinyl booths and vintage ice cream machine. Previous owners Domenic and Sofia Demarco put it up for sale last year – on the condition that nothing was changed. Sofia’s father Americo Rosso is pictured on the wall of the cafe with his daughter in a pram, in 1963 in a framed black-and-white photograph.
