Shops

Thank you to Colin Kay who wrote:

"If you look carefully at the buildings on the left of the photo you can see some fresh stonework on the ground level,  It's now a house.

It was a small general stores shop which when the owner retired.  Then, in 1955, my grandfather, AW Johnstone bought it and opened his plumbing business there, trading under his own name.  Everybody knew him as Sandy Johnstone. closed down due to the owner retiring."
