Stand out in High Street

This certainly stand out on #HighStreetArmadale. Says J Moran, est 1885, and that seems to be John Moran, licences grocer and spirit merchant, who was fined in 1890 for selling liquor in less than 2 gallons, ‘the minimum under the licence’. Don’t think any relation to Moran & Cato since that Moran not John. This one kept trading into the 1910s. I think this extravagant shop probably built 1890, otherwise it would have just said ‘1885’. Great stuff, all original, never painted, still with all its top knobs, I mean urns.
