I came across some papers I inherited from my dad before he passed away and I'd like to share this wee advert I found with you all. Angus (snr) would remember this.
ALEX SCOTT & COMPANY, 58, St Nicholas Street, Aberdeen, the 50/- Tailor, offer the best value in, BOY'S CLOTHING, just the thing for hard school wear. Made from strong all-wool fabric in, browns, fawns and grays, single or double breasted style. Sizes 3 to 8 fit boys six to fifteen. All sizes same price of 21/-.
I can remember getting a suit made there.
Get this one lads!!! AN EXTRA PAIR OF KNICKERS WITH EVERY SUIT!!! So that's two pair!! Good value eh!!! This could be a new trend. Hang on!!! It was!! ACDC, the head bagging guitarist.
Oh, the suit was not long trousers but shorties.
I only wore my suit on Sundays with my second hand shoes my dad had repaired.
Angus, that was a lot of tattie pickin' to get my first suit.
Well I hope you get a little enjoyment out of past trivia fae Aberdeen.
Guid blawin' and bashin' tae ya' aal.
