This photo from Winter 1978 shows the former JR Reid and original Glen Travel shop, next to the Lucky House Chinese Takeaway.
I was once told that the dome on the corner of these Co Central Premises buildings, at the corner of Herbertson Street had collapsed in on itself in a fire. This photo indeed, does confirm that the dome was not there when the buildings were demolished in 1979 shortly after. The dome is missing in the photo on the far left.
The Service Centre was a shop which dealt in washing machine and vacuum spares and it was a Mr Jimmy Pollock (of Northway) who was the proprietor. Now based in The Parkburn estate as A1 Repairs, his son Scott Pollock now runs it. Jimmy is thought to be the only remaining original tenant of Northway.
