Comments:
I am reliably informed that the shop with the man walking towards it (Drapers) belonged to my great aunt, Annie Wilson (died 1956). I am researching my family tree and if anyone can tell me anything about her two sons Disney and Alex I would be extremely grateful.

The bus in the picture is parked outside Blacks wool shop. The building itself is darker in colour which can clearly be seen. I remember the steps leading up to the door.
