The Last Shop in Earlsferry

This fascinating article is based on a talk about the Obarski Family given by Irene Stevenson to the Elie and Earlsferry History Society on 13 February 2020. It is published, with the kind permission of Irene, to coincide with the VE75 commemorations, which is very apt. It is well worth a read!

    Really interesting. I remember the shop and post office well. Always first port of call to buy a bucket and spade and fishing net!

    I well recall the Obarski family, but I also remember the shop beside Tony’s cafĂ© as Inez Moat’s. Would this have been 1950s?
