Robert Stewart asked me recently, “Have you ever heard of Bobby Robertson? Bobby owned a little grocery shop on the corner of Auchenraith Road and Welsh Drive. I remember it from the fifties and sixties, I don’t know if the property was always a shop, or when it was converted to a house. Bobby also had a mobile shop. I remember seeing him at Barnhill, Craigmuir Road, Auchentibber etc.”
Attached is a little plan of where Robert is referring to. An early plan mind, before Welsh Drive was built. I have to admit having no knowledge of this little former shop, although driving by today, its certainly a house now. Does anybody remember the shop, who ran it or what the business was called? Finding the name of the business usually allows me to investigate deeper. Thanks.
