Conn's Building, Inglis Street

Conn's Restaurant and Confiserie were situated in Inglis Street, Inverness. They belonged to Mr Victor Conn, an Italian gentleman. To the left of Conn's building were Watson, taxidermist, and the Club Bar. To the right was the Walkers store, selling tartan novelties and fancy goods. The Stewart Restaurant occupied a building on the opposite side of the street.

Inglis Street, named after Provost William Inglis, used to be the crowded link between the town's meal market and the cattle market. Along with Academy Street and Eastgate, it was also the site of the town's annual Martinmas Market, held in November. This was more commonly called 'The Cheese Market', as locally made cheese and butter were sold at this fair. Today, the street is pedestrianised. Most of the buildings in Inglis Street date from the 19th century.
