Window to the Past: Harriet Street, 1961

editorial image

This was the central section of the street that is now part of Thornliebank Road.

At this time Bob

McKay was manager of the Co-op grocery shop on the right.

The only protection shops needed in those days were the iron concertina fold-along gates seen here covering the entrance to the doors.

Greenbank Street is beyond the two shops blinds.
