THIS IS A BLAST FROM THE PAST

This is a blast from the past , I think that the photo was taken in the late 1940`s or early 1950`s. Perhaps somebody out there knows the full story of what happened at Ross`s drapers. I remember that one of the family had an interesting register of the Lanarkshire Yeomanry which went back to the end of the 18th century . One of the entries notes that one of the volunteers had deserted to the Americans.
The view of Darroch`s shop is interesting , great emphasis on Radios , note they were not selling T.Vs, even if they did have them very few people could afford them. There was just one station even if you had a TV and that was the BBC!
