St Clair's Emporium- Brian Laughton

The sixth 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 Brian Laughton, who took over the business after legendary entrepreneur and founder of the emporium Bill Sinclair died. I believe Brian is Bill's nephew.

Comments:
Yes Brian is Bill Sinclair's nephew and worked with his uncle Bill at the Emporium for many years before inheriting the company on Bill Sinclair's death.
