Mr Hanna’s Sweetie Shop at Russell Street.

Mr Hannah's Sweet Shop Russell Street Freddie Krukar.

 

Back in the 1950s through to the 1980s, Mr Hannah owned this little sweetie shop that sat on the corner of Russell Street and High Blantyre Road.

Mr Hannah sold Sweets, Tobacco and other little day-to-day things. He would sit in his shop and he loved his pipe and would often be sitting puffing away when you walked in.

He also owned the pidgeon huts just up the road a bit, some of you may remember that the pigeon huts were built on stilts, as they were built on the hill next to the burn that separates Hamilton & Blantyre.

What are your memories of Mr Hannah’s sweetie shop? Do you have an old picture of a building in Hamilton that is no longer standing? If you do, then please send them to us.
