100 years ago Hunthill Road looked very different. The High Blantyre Train line ran directly over the road on a bridge at this location. There was no Stonefield Crescent. The houses on the right obviously weren’t built and were only fields with only “Old Place” (The Coachhouse) sitting in the field on the right. The line was on a raised embankment which still exists on the left today behind Armour Court as a walkway. The raised embankments that would have gradually sloped downwards from the bridge on the right were removed when the housing estate was built at Stonefield Crescent in the 1920’s. I’ve made a mockup of how this picture would have looked like, overlaid on a modern photo.
J. Bethel commented further, “Houses on Stonefield Crescent were erected during the early 1920’s as homes for hero’s 1914-1918 ww1, I can comment on this as my grandfather & mother lived @ 2 Stonefield Crescent & this was the family home untill the death of my uncle in 2008 @ the age of 88 years.”
