I reckon Larg's missed a good opportunity to have a bit of fun with the wording in their caption, and could have related more appropriately with the images of the musical instruments.
They opted to say "The new bridge is another link in our chain of contacts...". To me, that makes them sound like ironmongers!
How about something like "Larg's - in tune with progress". Much better, and I won't charge a fee for that one!
Smith Brothers department store, on Murraygate/Commercial St corner, saw themselves as a city attraction that would get everyone flocking across the bridge to visit them!
They did have the Globe Restaurant I suppose.
Can anyone remember what their Mannequin Parades were like?
