Grandfather Willie Geddes

This is my Grandfather Willie Geddes who had a shoemaker shop at the harbour end of King Street. The photo was taken at Scotsburn in 1930.

He originally lived at 43 High Street which I believe was requisitioned for war use and the family had to move out. I believe my sister Audrey was born there. It is now the Job Centre I think. I think my Grandfather was a poorly organised shoemaker as every time I asked him to stitch up a rip in my football he always said his machine was broken. This used to irritate me endlessly as the football was my most prized possession.
