The grocers shop was owned by Hughie and Alice Jack, and the car was also theirs. The lady on the left of the picture was Teenie Macdonald, but unsure about the other lady, does anybody recognise her ?

I remember Alice and Hughie Jack had this wee shoppie.

Great to see a photo of Hughie Jack's shop, I often went there for my sweets when I was a little girl.

Is that the Jacks who lived in Burnside?

I used to run down from school to buy the white chocolate mice and lucky tatties from Hughie Jack's.

I ruined my teeth on Lucky Tatties.

And I thought it was the Coo Candy that ruined your teeth, Margaret - I remember you being called Coo Candy in Cromarty because you were so partial to it!

I don't think I liked it that much Mary. It became a gimmick!

I think the lady with my mother is Annabell Fraser. The little house at the bottom of the Big Vennel (no longer there) was occupied by Mrs Ross.

I also remember Hughie Jack's shop - I wonder what he would make of Tescos. I think as kids we had great fun picking out sweets with the little bit of money we had to spend.

I think the ladies are Murdo Macdonald's wife, Tina and Mrs Calder.
