Old Photograph Book Shop 107 South Street St Andrews Fife Scotland

Old photograph of the John Innes Book Shop at 107 South Street in St Andrews, Fife, Scotland. John Innes’ success in starting up the St Andrews Citizen newspaper encouraged him, in 1879, to buy the Tullis Family printing and publishing business. Its founder Robert Tullis, indentured in 1786 to a St Andrews bookseller and bookbinder, had learnt printing at the University workshop. In 1795 he set up, in Cupar, a printing and, later, a publishing business. When, in 1890, Provost Murray’s post office, which also sold Newspapers, was transferred to the adjacent Christian Institute, Innes’ firm retained the newspaper distribution in the corner shop which, in 1927, they bought.
