Trinity Lane
Trinity Lane, Aberdeen, c.1975 - Trinity Street and Trinity Lane itself takes its name from the ground in the area once owned by the Trinity Friars. The building in the foreground was once known as Trinity Chapel, being opened for public worship on Sunday, 27th April, 1794. For a number of years, the Chapel was an important centre of religious life and activity. The Disruption of 1843 however eventually dispersed the congregation. The building itself was eventually sold by the Presbytery and became for a number of years the Alhambra Music Hall. In later years it became, as is evident from the photo, a fruit warehouse, then a showroom and later a fish restaurant.

"There was a wholesale fruit merchant, Rezin's, on Regent Quay. Around the time of the war, word got round really quickly when a banana boat came in. I cycled all the way from Great Northern Road as soon as the news reached us. People came from all over to queue up to get a bunch of bananas. Where MUSA is now was also a banana warehouse. Other fruit sellers were Knowles and Veitch Moir."
