Moss heritage

We recently discovered this old photograph showing the shop my great great grandparents owned in Maud, Aberdeenshire.

I have one of the original paper bags and it states

James Towler
Grocer, draper and general merchant
Choice selection of home and empire fruits in season
Established 1887
Telephone No. 39

Sadly it closed in the 1970s.

I'm sure I would have loved it and perhaps a little bit lives on through my shop Moss.
