Mrs MacEwan minding Viv's Emporium - see picture #1098 for an exterior shot. In the 70's this was the MacEwan's sweetshop.

Woow I remember my mum sending me to the shop from the big house to get real cream �clairs. That was when the MacEwans had the shop. Comment left on 05 December 2005 at 11:51 by Gary S.
Nice to see the Emporium, but does anyone remember the shoe shop ran by Mr Ledgerwood? The shop I think was DE Shoes. My mum worked there as a young girl. Comment left on 12 April 2006 at 22:10 by Anne Kidd
Hi Anne - picture #1590 shows DE Shoe Services across the road from the Emporium. As a 7 or 8 year old in the late 60s I remember being sent to pick shoes up from Mr Ligertwood, (though it was pronounced Ledgerwood) from his workshop which at that time was at Miller House beside the Courthouse. I remember the corridor ran through from the front door to the back of the house, and just outside the back door was his wooden workshop.

picture #1054 shows Willie Ligertwood.

Thankyou Garve for photo of Ledgies shop, it did bring back memories, I was born in Cromarty Allerton Farm, and always feel like its "home" somehow. Comment left on 13 April 2006 at 19:14 by Anne Kidd (NEE Wade)
