Good old "Nonnies" - huge variety of sweeties in big glass jars wrapped up in brown paper bags - a Halfpenny each.

There was also a store room at the back in the 1950s which was a complete Aladin's cave - marvellous.

They sold round ice-cream cones with the ice-cream wrapped separately and had a fishpond in the garden.

That brings back memories of meccano sets and fretsaws and model railways.

No Invergordonian could ever forget "Nonnie's". Now THAT was a great shop to browse in and have a "wish list" a mile long!!

I’m just wondering if anyone can help me out? I’m trying to do the family tree for my mother and at the moment there is a gap for her grandparents.

She has a letter addressed to an Ann Bell to the address: 89 High Street, Invergordon. Ann's mother was Jessie (my mum's nan) and Jessie married a David Bell who he died on the railways and together they had 2 children - Ann and William Bell. After he died, Jessie married a Henry Donald and together they had Grace Donald born 1920. Judging by the letter, Grace was born and lived in this house. When Grace was about 15 she lived at the Lorne Hotel, Argyll with Henry, Jessie and Margaret Donald.
If anyone has any information could you please let me know as I would be very grateful.
