Only the Pharmacy remains from this row of shops at the west end of Emsdorf Street. Photographed in the late 1920s, this people-filled image shows a busy stretch of businesses. The window of what is still the Lundin Links Pharmacy is on the right. At this time the proprietor was the chemist Andrew Hogg. Next door is the Fruiterer and Florist owned by Jimmie Brown. He was a market gardener at Hatton Farm and, prior to having this shop, had sold his wares from a portable hut at The Plantin'. More about him to come in a future post. Then was John Guthrie the Fishmonger and, beyond that, the Newsagent and Stationer owned by the Youngs. Mrs Christina Young had moved her business from the Bridge House at the Wynd to this location and the business had passed to her children upon her death. Her son John Young ran this shop in the not-so-distant past and he is still remembered by many local people. If you recall these shops - either in the days of the shopkeepers mentioned or later - please post a comment or get in touch. I remember a shop selling bathroom fittings here, just before the shops were converted into homes in the early 1980s.
