Bothwell Bridge 1910

bothwellbridgeIt may be just outside Blantyre, but I couldn’t resist this charming photograph of Bothwell Bridge from 1910. A quiet, sleepy scene with a lady cyclist having the full freedom of the bridge with only an occasional person to navigate past.

Tramlines are laid within the road cobbled surface. The scene is very manic today with the busy East Kilbride Expressway running under the arch from the vantage point where this picture was taken and this particular road used as a main throughfare linking the Raith Interchange.
