26 My Canmore – personal response History of premises Posted by Tom Caldwell on 14 June 2010Tom Caldwell I believe that this was the premises of my grandfather Tom Caldwell's "Lemonade" factory from some time in the 1930's until he sold the business to the Scottish Co-operative Wholesale Society in The SCWS set up a chain of soft drink factories trading as "Hendry's". The property including the adjoining residence was known as "Shawbank" East Shaw Street Kilmarnock. Any further information on the history of the building or of the firm will be welcomed. Probably wartime by the get up of the truck – same building from a different direction – truck is a Commer Raider. Factory used to supply Prestwick Air Base with “Lemonade” during WWII.
