IMMORTAL HOWDEN ENDER

Anyone Recognise ?

Recommended Posts

Intersection of Montague Row and Tomnahurich Street.  (Couldn't you have picked one that was easier to spell?)

57 is a bakery now.

Oh no!  Who knew that Inverness had so many identical buildings?  🙂

Anyway, I am off out now for my permitted exercise, and may be some time.  Not sure how many people I am allowed to talk to when I'm out, but I will stay alert.

Maybe Mantis can have a go at this one when he gets up.

That's it 👍 I think the barber was Geordie Horn but I might be wrong. He was better than the grumpy barber that I first went to in Grant Street after moving into Inverness

Wow, its definitely close to the same look. I guess a few streets do look very similar (when you give allowance for redevelopment and renovations that took place over the years ).... Capture.PNG

I used to go Geordie Horn when he was in Church Street, somewhere around about Bow Court

Was he in Celt St late 60's to 70's or that might not have been him he was small and bald?

He was in Church Street in 1970 when I stopped getting my hair cut. He was also there for a good few years before that. I can't really remember what he looked like. He had another younger barber worked with him who had ginger hair. You always got a penny dainty after getting a haircut.

I think I have the wrong name someone might remember who the barber was on Celt Street.

Here is an easier one.

Pretty certain that is Friar's street and the white brick on the right is the corner of that wee house where the guy made Targes and displayed them in the window ?

That's right but I can't remember what the white building on the corner was.

Could it have been a printers?

Must be well tucked away from the road Culduthel, Drummond or Stratherick!

Aye, Culduthel. Just opposite Southside Rd you’ll see the gate. Sandy Macdonald from Lewis and his wife Laurna from Shetland. Had Shetland Originals shop where Shapla is now. Uncle and Auntie of Mrs Mantis but both long gone.
I take it the cars are a bit dark for you 😉
