Stirs the mem­ory

The Courier & Advertiser (Fife Edition) - - COMMENT -

“Ev­ery so of­ten, Craigie comes up with some ‘gems’ which re­ally stir the mem­o­ries of us oldies,” says a reg­u­lar reader.

“The re­cent item on James Bar­rie Wal­lace, baker, on the Hawkhill, is the lat­est. His shop was on the north side of the Hawkhill, di­rectly op­po­site the Princess Cin­ema, and a church mis­sion (Mag­dalen’s?).

“To na­tives, the name James Bar­rie Wal­lace would prob­a­bly not have been recog­nis­able. The shop was al­ways just known as Jim Wa’liss’s. It was de­mol­ished with the rest of the Hawkhill.”
