Yes Erainn,

Just a few doors up from the George and Dragon Pub on the corner of Grange Rd I think it was.

There may well have been a tobacconist by Marion St, a road the size of Argyle St would have had a few I would think,
the Dolls Hospital, was mentioned in a thread on here recently, sorry can't find it, I'm sure someone will.

I remember the Tobacconist in Market Street very well, bought many items from there over the years, just a few doors down from Haylocks shoe shop on the corner of Hamilton St. In between was a little DIY shop.

I remember the dolls hospital. Mum used to get the "Glass Eyes" for my cuddly toys from there, when the wire snapped. We used to get them from the Dolls Hospital In Borough Road Seacombe most of the time.
