Ghulam Rasul - Dingwall - Drapery - aprons and overalls


I met Ghulam Rasul in his drapery shop, Dingwall who delighted in showing me his stock of aprons, overalls and pinnies. Ghulam told me that the last of his wrap aprons had been sold to a lady from Canada. I can't recall how recently this was, but, having been in the business since for 60 years, since  leaving school in 1959, Ghulam is thinking about retiring. In the earler days of his business, he travelled with his shop, going north as far as Brora.

  I purchased a few items from his stock, but he insisted on giving me more, which I am very grateful. It seems I have started an apron collection, and it's growing as I descover them on my travels!
