Former meat importer in Kemp Street

By Kim Curran, North Laine resident

Long forgotten now, but once a thriving business, meat importer Frigorifico Argentino proudly showed its wares at 34 Kemp Street, pictured on the right early in the 20th century.

The men, in gaucho style, pose with sides of beef exposed to the open air. The shop boasted branches in Liverpool, Manchester, Birmingham and Cardiff.

Also on the right is how the building looks today (2016).
