About this memory

2019 – Robert worked for 50 years in Lauriston Place apart from a very short spell in Brougham Street which he didn’t find to his liking, he preferred the smaller Shop atmosphere. Robert worked for 50 years in Lauriston Place.

Robert as well as being a dedicated Jambo (Hearts football supporter) and a great Barber, also had an encyclopedic knowledge of Classical Music and Malt Whisky, a source of great entertainment for our Customers.
