*EDIT* This is actually one of Streapadair's pictures.

I hope you don't mind but I've made a print of this pic as my dad used to work in the Co-op in the early 70's. He's been gone over 7 years now but this picture brings back happy memories.

Thanks x

Yes, he worked in a few bakeries including Milanda in Wesleyan St, Dunns in Abercromby St, Beatties in Paton street, UCBS and eventually Bilslands in Hydepark St till we moved to Livingston in 1977.

He used to talk about walking over a suspension bridge to get to work and I had visions of something like the Golden Gate Bridge!!

Hi Gina, you're very welcome.

I always liked that photo too, lovely bridge that's still there, spectacular building that sadly isn't.

I remember the burly man had a child by the hand and was giving him (very loud) dog's abuse, which is why the couple coming the other way look a bit concerned.

Hi Gina.. I also worked in Milanda and Bilslands our paths may have crossed at some time, my condolences and sorry to read he passed away.
