Before Tommy Muir opened his paint shop it was a house in which two spinsters called Cumming lived. They were aunts to Louie Foubister of the Rocky Shop and one of them was still alive in the 1970's living in Buttquoy Crescent being looked after by Louie. Long ago before 1884 this building was the Post Office.
