St Clair's Emporium- in the doorway

The fourth of a series of pictures from that fine establishment where HIS is now on Pickaquoy Road. The last of the old fashioned hardware places like Nicol Spence's, PF Thomson's, Mackay's Furniture Store, PC Flett's...

Here we see some more of the workers: Johnny Rosie, who was a joiner, Samson, and the chap who was the blacksmith (I think)- over to you Moira!

John Rosie and Jimmy Duncan were the joiners. Not sure what Michael Sclater[samson] actually did. None of them were blacksmiths.

Nice to see this old photo, I went out with Jimmy Duncan for a while when I was about 16 I think it was!
