Hello Cathy,

Ayr and District Directory 1920. No.4 is “Etive”, Walter R. Cuthbert. He appears to have been connected to Alex Cuthbert & Sons, shoe manufacturers. https://archive.org/stream/ayrdistrictd ... 0/mode/2up

In 1926 directory Chalmers Road West changed to Chalmers Road. https://archive.org/stream/ayrdistrictd ... 0/mode/2up

In 1926 directory Chalmers Road East has changed to Inverkar Road. No.4 is “Etive”, Sam Menzies. He was a Grocery Manager. https://archive.org/stream/ayrdistrictd ... arch/etive

Appears to be the place with the white gateposts. https://www.google.com.au/maps/@55.4539 ... 56!6m1!1e1

Hope that helps,
Alan

A search of the 1925 valuation roll at Scotlands People shows a John Shiells at House 4 Chalmers Road East. The index is free to view but the actual record will probably give you the proprietor's name too.

Regards,
Annette
