Anyone got any photos of Muir of Fowlis where Jimmy Birse's shop and the bungalow[ Birsemohr ] would have been. I lived at Birsemohr back in the early 50.s when my dad was a van driver for Jimmy Birse and Eric Robertson was in the shop[ I think] I'd would love to see photos of the shop and house.

I will ask my mother,Eveline (nee Murray) she might have one or two taken when Douglas Murray was in the shop
