This great photo was taken at the bottom of Stonefield Road in the winter of 1978/1979.
Shared here by Sandy Wilkie, it shows some of the more popular shops many of us remember. In the foreground most notably is Mickey’s Cafe and on the opposite side of the close, James Hastie bakers. These shops all got a colourful overhaul in the early 1980’s and of course are no longer here now.
Whats your memories of this area?
