Anne Armstrong

“Dumfries used to be a busy little market town”

Anne Armstrong (only admits to 70), is a Doonhamer through and through. We sat in the Dumfries Day Centre, a weekly occurrence for her to keep herself occupied. She shared her memories as a young girl in Dumfries, in particular, her memories of all the sweetie shops in the town. Anne used to help her family and would take up newspapers to Mrs Watson’s shop so the vegetables could be wrapped up and brought home. In return, Anne enjoyed a small chocolate bar or sweetie. A treat for Anne was going to the cinema with her Dad but the biggest treat was ‘Flash Gordon’ at the Minors Club on a Saturday morning.
