    Tram lines for the Townhill to Rumblingwell tram. At least part of this service must have run every 5 minutes. The bus that replaced it was still every 5 at the Townhill end as late as 1950. I managed to acquire a timetable for it.

    James Kyle was my great uncle or cousin. The shop wasn’t on this site in my time but at the shop that became Grace Hill. Remember all the little drawers with ties, socks, handkies,etc. and my granny taking us in and neglecting to tell us to quit opening and shutting all the drawers. Alex Kyle must have loved us!

    I remember Kyles in Bruce Street in the 1950s where I got my school trousers. The shop in the photo would have been demolished at some stage and Coull and Matthew (Ironmongers) moved from almost over the road in Bridge Street. The first part of their name is visible. In “my” day, the shop next to Coull and Matthew in the photo was Bruce and Glen, Grocers.
