Jean and Roddy McBeath outside their shop

Year is a guess, but looks about right. Ice Cream poster shows a Zoom, a Fab, and Orange, Pineapple and Strawberry Mivvies ;)

Where was the shop? I can't picture it at all, or has the facade changed? Loving the Terry's All Gold boxes in the windows - weren't they the height of luxury in the 70s?!

It's Tunney's?

The shop is on the corner of High Street and Bank Street - it used to be Eva's shop many years ago.

Was there a model boat in the window after it was a shop but before it was a house?
Added by I Hill on 05 December 2008
Yes Isla Roddy use to keep some of the model boats he made himself there until somebody smashed the window one night. Luckily none of the boats were damaged. It still is a shop it just isnt used as one anymore and the windows usually get used for displays when there are local events on.

When I was back in Cromarty in June 2006 it was nice to see the old shop my Mum and Dad had in the 60s. It wasn't operating as a shop when I was back, but it was still good to see the old place.

Nothing to do with this picture really, but can anyone remember KELLYS shop, it was round where the bus used to start near the old picture house, I used to love going into that shop when I was a child.

Couldn't you get a cup of tea at Kelly's? I seem to remember my mother getting a cup of tea there and I got ice-cream - am I right about this?

It later was run by Miss Dunnet and her family as I helped them in an evening.

I used to spend my summers in Cromarty around this time. My memory may be incorrect, but this sweetie shop closed in the mid 70's when the owner decided to go and work at the Nigg Bay Oil Rig building yard instead. After that, I think the best shop to visit for sweeties and papers was on Church street.
