Benzie & Miller's department store, Union Street, Inverness

Benzie & Miller's department store, 13/17 Union Street, Inverness, 1950s. This department store had its roots in Fraserburgh, where it was first opened by William Benzie in 1887 as a modest shop named 'The Colosseum Drapery Warehouse'.

Over the next 20 years the store prospered and grew in size until it began to take the shape of a large department store. By this time, Mr James Miller had also become a director of the firm which now traded as 'Benzie & Miller'. The firm continued to expand with branches opening in Banff and Inverness
