40 years ago

MR David P. McRitchie, who in the 44 years since he set up as an ironmonger in Brechin has become something of an institution in the High Street, has sold his business to Mr W. Hutcheson (though old customers will be pleased to learn that he is still to be around at ‘No 78’).

THe Round Table is planning a really ambitious send-off for Civic Week this year. They have been successful in getting the active cooperation of the Services, Navy, Army and Air Force, and are also hopeful that this year the Weather Clerk is going to do something for them. Their programme is one that definitely requires a couple of warm, sunny days.
