Wood & Cairns

The Courier & Advertiser (Perth and Perthshire Edition) - - COMMENT -

“With ref­er­ence to the ar­ti­cle in Tues­day’s Courier about Si­na­tra’s Bar,” emails An­gus Lock­hart, “the pre­vi­ous in­car­na­tion in the 1960s was Wood & Cairns, an elec­tri­cal whole­saler.

“I worked there in charge of goods in/ goods out. The front shop was en­tered from King Street and the rear en­trance was in Cow­gate, where I worked.

“All the items eg re­frig­er­a­tors, cook­ers, elec­tric heaters and other elec­tri­cal goods went out the back door and were de­liv­ered by lo­cal car­ri­ers. There was a mes­sage boy who de­liv­ered in the town cen­tre by bi­cy­cle. Wood & Cairns moved to Blin­shall Street for a while be­fore clos­ing.”
