The grocers shop was owned by Hughie and Alice Jack, and the car was also theirs. The lady on the left of the picture was Teenie Macdonald, but unsure about the other lady, does anybody recognise her ? Comment left on 30 March 2007 at 20:48 by Anne Short (Finlayson)
I remember Alice and Hughie Jack had this wee shoppie. Comment left on 30 March 2007 at 20:51 by Sue Florence
Great to see a photo of Hughie Jack's shop, I often went there for my sweets when I was a little girl. Comment left on 30 March 2007 at 22:23 by Margaret Cassie ( Clelland )
Is that the Jacks who lived in Burnside? Comment left on 31 March 2007 at 19:41 by Sandy Thomson

I used to run down from school to buy the white chocolate mice and lucky tatties from Hughie Jack's. Comment left on 27 November 2007 at 00:35 by Caroline Macdonald

I ruined my teeth on Lucky Tatties. Comment left on 23 June 2009 at 21:40 by Margaret Tong
And I thought it was the Coo Candy that ruined your teeth, Margaret - I remember you being called Coo Candy in Cromarty because you were so partial to it! Comment left on 24 June 2009 at 00:02 by Mary Campbell
I don't think I liked it that much Mary. It became a gimmick! Comment left on 24 June 2009 at 15:46 by Margaret Tong
I think the lady with my mother is Annabell Fraser. The little house at the bottom of the Big Vennel (no longer there) was occupied by Mrs Ross. Comment left on 26 August 2009 at 16:33 by Bertie Macdonald
I also remember Hughie Jack's shop - I wonder what he would make of Tescos. I think as kids we had great fun picking out sweets with the little bit of money we had to spend. Comment left on 28 August 2009 at 22:12 by Rhona Garratt
I think the ladies are Murdo Macdonald's wife, Tina and Mrs Calder. Comment left on 15 September 2011 at 11:49 by Alla Macdonald
