Edinburgh Shops

"When I went through all the messages on the web site pertaining to the shops in central Edinburgh, it sure brought back some very dear memories.

I was an apprentice in PT's then, following my army service, I was an electrician for all of the House of Fraser.  I really did get around:

-  PT's

J&R Allens


-  Peter Allens




-  and probably a few more that I can't bring to mind.

We also worked in Glasgow, when they built a new Arnott Simpsons store."

Patrick Thomsons

"Does anyone remember the whole front of PT's lit up with Christmas lights?  We started that job in mid-September to have it ready.

What about the Grotto in the basement of PT's?  We did all the electrical work but the kudos belonged to the window dressing dept."
