Cafe - a Memory of Lesmahagow.

There was a wee shop on the High Street of Lesmahagow that my mother always took me to as a boy. Down the left side were tables where you could sit and have juice and stuff, (not sure what I had, but I bet it was gooey and good!
They sold other stuff too like toys and some other household things if my memory serves me right. I doo remember getting a little car bought for me on occasion. The thing that sticks in my mind is the transparent yellow blinds they used to stop everything in the windows being bleached by the sun. I never have seen these in use anywhere I have been since.
