Willie Hourston at St. Boniface Fair

Willie Hourston and Mrs. Stokes attending the St. Boniface Fair in Fortrose. Part of the Cathedral building can be seen at the back right. Year is a guess.

For many years Willie ran a bric-a-brac shop in Bank St. It was in what is now a ground floor flat below the Snooker Club - the one on the left when facing the arch. I can't remember what the shop was called.

The shop was called "Chaotique" - very appropriately. Willie used to go off to the sales in Dingwall and Inverness in his old Triumph Herald estate and when he got back to the shop there were usually several people waiting to see what he had with him and half of it was sold again before he even got it into the shop!
