Eyre Place

Old Mill

(restored)

This view looks to the NW across Eyre Place towards the restored old mill, which now looks to be in good condition.  The street on the left is Canon Street.  There is a lean-to structure on the old mill, down Canon Street.  This is where the water wheel used to  be.

The cock and fox on the roof of the building are fairly recent additions.

Ice Maker

"I was born in a single end, down at 4a Canon Street.

I remember there was an ice maker, right opposite us.  It would have been right behind old mill house."

Wigmakers

"The restored mill was, for many years, home to A&A Wigmakers.   My mother worked there during the 1950s until 1972."

Thank you to Danny Callaghan who wrote:

Wigmakers

"I worked for Souness & Spiers timber merchants on Warriston Road, from 1960 to 1962.    One of our regular customers was George Theurer who owned A&A Wigs.  They were carrying out some works in the Mill building then.

The business is still operating now, at Tanfield about 200 meters away.  I see from their web site that they now have a chain of specialist agents throughout the country, and a George Theurer is named as the Director.  I don't know if it is the same George Theurer, as would at a guess he would now be in his 80s."

Thank you to Dougie Bryce who added:

Wigmakers

"The A&A who started A&A Wigmakers were Mr G A (Adolph) Theurer, later to be elected to the Town Council, and Miss A Nicolson.

This would have been in the 1940s or 1950s, so if they are still with us now, they will be a ripe old age.
