1 pointIn addition to the links that Scotty sugested there is a link in this forum for Butchers of Inverness although not much in it. https://caleythistleonline.com/topic/29815-inverness-butchers/ There is a mention of Munro and Coffey Butcher in Dalneigh, I don't remember the Munro but did know Mike Coffey who had the butcher shop in Hilton. He died earlier this year but his son also Mike stays in Inverness and works for John Munro Butcher in Dingwall.
1 pointI found a residential and business directory for Inverness for 1935-36 online. It confirms A Munro, butcher, at 16 Innes Street (which was a residential street of houses). But none of the many butchers' businesses in the town had "Munro" in the name, so I guess that at the time he was working for one of them. Buying a van or two is the sort of thing you would do if you were starting up your own business, so finding a business directory for 1938 or 1939 could be very useful. (Later addition: Duh! I've just seen that the directory that IBM linked to lists businesses as well, on the appropriate streets.) Similarly, copies of the "Inverness Courier" for that period - which are not online, AFAIK - might carry adverts for the business, though perhaps just a few, around the time of startup.
1 pointMay I suggest the Local History Forum and Inverness Then and Now groups on Facebook. These are both full of folk with knowledge going way back ! https://www.facebook.com/groups/Invernessthenandnow/ https://www.facebook.com/InvernessLocalHistory/
