The other day we had a couple of people mention Kayes gift shop that used to stand opposite the Bush pub on Market Street. Here is the row of houses and shops that Kayes stood with.
The White building in the middle was the Laundry which was owned by Harry Rutherfords brother. Kayes shop is the first shop after the laundry going up Market Street.
James North factory (formerly Slack Mill) which dominates the photo is a familiar building to all Hydonians above a certain age!
I'm not sure of the date of the picture but I'm guessing at late 1970's /early 1980's as the houses look derelict and ready for demolition?
Anyone out there have any ideas?.
Thanks to Ron P. for a super photo.
It certainly brought back a lot of memories for me !
