Wee Andy's Tuck Shop

A Memory of Ayr

I remember when I was at Newton Academy School there was a wee tuck shop across the road called Wee Andys. It was the front room of their house and they sold sweets and Iron Bru drinks. The size of the drinks depended on how much money you had. A penny drink was served in a Shippans paste jar and you could buy up to a threepenny drink ...happy days.
