Oct.1974 Dalmarnock Road at the junction of Muslin Street and Old Dalmarnock Road, Pirn Street school bottom right corner
 
Dec.2009, GlescaPal JK, England.
When I was wee we got our messages from Peter and Jock Hair's Grocery on the corner of Dalmarnock Road and Muslin Street, just opposite Pirn Street. I remember carrying heavy bags across the spare bit of ground between the shop and Muslin Street on my way home to Landressy Street. 
The shop can clearly be seen in the photo - it's the one with the white awning. Don't know, though, if the Hair brothers still owned it then. We left Brigton in 1967.
