Photograph of Ironmongers ‘Watt and Dewar’ from 1963 of their premises in East Port before they moved to the New Row (opposite the Alhambra). It was situated where the Bank of Scotland building is now, next to the East Port pub. The shop, run by Jim Craig and his wife, was an Aladdin’s Cave with everything from the proverbial needle to an anchor.
