Old Invergordon - Ross Lane

Ross Lane in approximately 1930. Pretoria House and the shop can be seen in the background of the photo. The stone wall with window recess still exists, but the recess is blocked up.

Just up this very narrow street was a garage Angelo's..not too many people knew that there was another garage in town besides Taylors and Munro's.....

I think that's my father Alister Ross, playhouse manager for 30 odd years.

Without a doubt Alan, he did well to put in 30 years.

Lovely old pic. Re garage, was this used by John Ross for a time 60s/70s?

PS Alan - strange, I was just thinking in the last few days of you and your dad, who I liked very much. (I was looking at some swimming pool pics here and seem to recall your enthusiastic shouts of "A topper" and possibly "Motherwell 1"?) Cheers!

Hi Harry, I remember Angelo's garage very well. Also Alister Ross. He gave me my job in the Playhouse as ice-cream girl in the '50s. He was a really nice man and was thrilled to bits when I won the North of Scotland award for selling the most "Eldorado" ice cream. Happy Days!!!!

Hi Rosalie, good for you re the award. Fair to say that I would have purchased a few?

Re Garages there was also Andrews garage further up that lane between Outram Street and Clyde Street. This was split into two parts, the large garage and smaller one alongside. If I remember right the RAF took over this garage during the war. Correct me if I'm wrong.

A new challenge for every one, how's the young girl in the pram?

Hi Doug, Yes, I remember Andrew's garage and the RAF taking it over. I loved going there and getting a real row from my Granny for getting so dirty picking up coils of metal from the garage floor.

Hi Alan, Yes, I remember your mother. A very nice lady. Quietly spoken. I also remember your great aunts. Happy memories of those days.

If that is your dad Alan, his youngest grandson is very like him there.

Hi folks, not a member on this site but came across it while searching for history of the Angelo family. My wife is one of Joe Angelo's grand-daughters. She was wondering if anyone knew where Joe and his wife Beatrice (my wife is named after her granny) are buried? There is still one of the Angelo daughters alive, Babs lives in New Jersey with her husband Tony.
