Crieff Shops and businesses 100 years ago ( names & places ) - Part Two

List of the Retail and Business Outlets in Crieff in 1913/1914 giving name of proprietor and address - Part Two

One Hundred Years Ago !

This is Part Two of the Blog  published on the 29th August 2013 I have listed all the names  and addresses of the businesses and professions . Of the ten banks listed only two ( the Bank of Scotland and the Clydesdale ) remain . Campbell the Bakers is still in King Street albeit at a different address . Of the other names that still trade  we have solicitors  Graham & Finlayson in Comrie Street , Frank Thomson in East High Street and the Strathearn Herald is still around  but operating from Perth and not Crieff . Such is
change !
