When I was a little lad in the 1950s there was a row of wooden buildings off the 'little beach' backing onto the side of the North Marine Park.It was Frankie's fish'n'chip premises.
The other premises (pic below)from those days was yards from Gypsies Green Stadium.
What happened to Frankie's, because today Colman's seems to have taken over.
The answer is that in the 1920s one of the Frankie's daughters Nellie M married a Colman.
