Lumsden and Gibson, grocers, at 95 Union Street and Manfield and sons, shoe shop, at 99 Union Street. Grants, a furniture shop can be seen above.

Silver City Vault user Ed Fowler supplied has supplied some further excellent information:

"Grants Furnishings eventually extended in to the street level premises from the first floor and was a popular supplier of furniture items in the 1940's and 50's by offering convenient hire purchase.

Just out of frame is the sliding gate across the arcade style entrance which crossed via a covered cast iron support bridge above Carnegie Brae and up steps to the North Gallery of Simpson's New Market which was mainly laid out with 2nd hand Books Stall displays and a Stamp Collector's Shop.

A Victorian coin operated clockwork display provided entertainment for children of an exciting fire engine and ladder rescue scene."
