Broughton Point

"Jim Patience mentions having  worked at the store in East Claremont Street.

I thought he might be interested in this photo that I took in November 2009.  The store, at Broughton Point, has now become a fabric shop and restaurant.  Previously, I believe it was a tool hire shop or similar.

On the right-hand edge of the photo. you can see the St Cuthbert's crest on the end of the building - 'Established 1859'."

Co-op Plaque

"I took this photo on February 15, 2011.

St Cuthbert's Co-operative Society was formed in 1859.  I don't know what the crest here signifies, and cannot find it on any store memorabilia.  I assume it is something like: 'From small seeds, big things grow'.

This Scotmid web page has a good history of the store."

St Cuthbert's Beads

Also at 92 Fountainbridge

"You will find these St Cuthbert's beads on the building at 92 Fountainbridge. with the date 1880."

Dates

St Cuthbert's Headquarters were 92-98 Fountainbridge from 1880 until the company moved its Headquarters at Newbridge in 2005. **

**Source:  Scotmid Co-operative: Our History

I believe that the plaque on the Fountainbridge building has the date '1880'  in the upper corners and 'Founded 1859' at the bottom.

the plaque on the Broughton building (in the photo above) has the date '1923'  in the upper corners and 'Founded 1859' at the bottom.

St Cuthbert's Beads

Background

Thank you to Sandra for also sending me a link to a Wikipedia site that gives some background to the beads that can be seen on this plaque:

The Wikipedia site begins:

"St. Cuthbert's beads (or Cuddy's beads) are fossilised portions of the "stems" of Carboniferous crinoids. Crinoids are a kind of marineechinoderm which are still extant, and which are sometimes known as "sea lilies".

These bead-like fossils are washed out onto the beach and in medieval Northumberland were strung together as necklaces or rosaries, and became associated with St Cuthbert."
