This photograph shows housing being demolished in upper Bruce Street in 1965 across from the Canmore Linen Works which were later used by the Andrew Thomson Lifestyle Furniture Showroom. After these buildings were demolished the road was closed and incorporated into the new Tesco store which now operates from this site.

    The building on the left was correctly the original mill, then also in the early 70s the joiners Kilgour Robinson, ultimately in late 80s and 90s Thomsons World of Furniture run by James Thomson until the mid 90s.

    The street was originally called Dam Side Street (as Fay pointed out) but Bruce Street sounds much better. It was so named because where the old bus station used to be, was a dam for water for the factories. It was filled in and used as the bus station for many decades before succumbing to Tesco’s.

    If you look closely at the side of the house you can see the workers failed to remove the solar panels before continuing the demolition, proving once again how technologically advanced Scotland is.

    I used to live in the house at the other end in the early 50′ s. It was a wonderful place to grow up. The bus stance was just round the corner on the left hand side and there were two parks opposite each other on Bruce St.
