George Street
This 1987 view of the east side of George Street show the premises at 12-16 and at 20-22 George Street in their last days before being demolished. The Rubber Shop had been in business in the city since 1890 when its founder, George Fowler opened premises at 16 St Nicholas Street called the London Rubber Company, supplying waterproofs, sports goods, hosepipes, washers etc. This expanded into a wide variety of toys and leather goods. In 1945, they moved from St Nicholas Street to these premises in George Street where they continued to sell toys, sports equipment, china and fancy goods until July 1986 when the impending development of the Bon Accord Centre forced their closure.

Aberdeen Local Studies
"During the summer holidays the local shops ran a quiz. For example they would put things in their windows and the children had to follow the clues and find the odd thing out. The Rubber Shop took part."

(Memories of holiday activities from the Torry Reminiscence Group.)
