My Home Town, Kirkwall from The Dandy

Sent in by Gordon Hill, who writes:
"I received this from a friend in Kent, Jim Hollands.
Thought you may be interested

I think the address should be Berstane Rd and the John Shearer a Local Petrol seller and Car dealer."

Date estimated, but is between 1965 and 1974 anyway!

Your quite right Gordon and the date would have been 1965. The £1.00 winnings would have probably bought you about 40 or 50 litres of petrol in those days!
