Larkfield Shops 1980s


This may take a few people back. Pictured are the shops at Larkfield on Stonefield Road. Happy Season Chinese restaurant has been there for a long time and the current Scotmid then was former “Landmark”, which many people still call it today! This may be going back to the 1980s, the shops located on the site of former Robertsons Building, a large tenement.

The Semples shop is fondly remembered , JDS now moved to another location. This shop is now Drew’s Candelina Yankee Candles shop. Shop photo by Drew Semple.
