PHOTOGRAPH OF THE MONTH: February/March 2021
This shows the shop which later became the Red Star Bar. The photograph dates from 1922 and the name on the shop appears to be W S Duncan. The shop was built in the 1870s as a tailors by James McIntosh. He later became a merchant as well. McIntosh died in 1920 so I presume that Duncan had it from around then until 1923 when it was bought by James Davidson from Midmar, Although I have details on Davidson and subsequent owners I hadn't come across Mr. Duncan before.
