This week our picture comes from Mr Charles Smith and shows Guthrie Port probably in the late 1940s, early 1950s, judging by the vehicles. The large buildings at the top of the road belong to engineers Giddings-Lewis & Fraser. On the left is a tailor, possibly Cameron or Canale, while over the road of the now vanished Reform Street is a grocer selling Lyons ice cream, possibly that of Mr Pyott or Mr MacDonald, and beyond that a bakery popular with factory workers for its bannocks.
On the right of the picture are ‘The Wyndies’, Crammond the plumber and Pelling and Cronshaw the joiners. Just out of shot on the left is the fish and chip shop of Mary Zaccarini.
