'Hi, I don't really know much about this photo other than it's Bridge Street- it says on the back " Crawfords shop-Balantynes shop, Flett and sons before reconstruction"

From Dougies Shearers collection.'

Date is an estimate.

Comments:
The shop premises situated at the foot of Bridge Street and now occupied by 'Focus on Orkney' were occupied by 'Crawford's Cafe' in the 1960's. Crawford's Cafe was owned and run by Mr Douglas Lloyd and family for many years.

A few months ago I saw a postcard of Bridge Street franked 30th March 1906 on which the tall building third from the left was marked with a cross, the writer saying it had been pulled down and replaced by a large new building in which he worked. Is that the entrance to Anchor Close that we can see on this side of the building or was it and its arch on the other side?
