Who for? I used to work around George Street and used to see a guy going about in suits a lot who I swore was Gary Wales double, but I thought he looked too young and just didn't think it would be him.

They did indeed, and they had at some time the Westbury (now the White Lady) and the Harry Ramsdens at Newhaven.

 

Sadly Alan died a good few years ago.

Goes back a lot further than that. Paddy Crossan had Paddy’s bar on rose street in the 20s. 

 

Black rose tavern I think it’s called now but was still Paddy’s bar until relatively recently.

The barbers was on the go while young Gordon Marshall was still playing for Celtic in the mid 90s, not sure of it was Gordon senior who cut hair as whenever I was in the shop he was always serving me my paper and fags.

Yep sorry meant to say it was Gordon jr. he cut my hair when he played for Falkirk and Celtic and after it all. Gave me the odd lift back to corstorphine where he lived at the time and after he played , as I was usually his last appointment and my folks lived not far from him. Good Jambo.

his dad did the shop up the stair as you say and is an absolute legend , total legend
