This lovely colour scene is at David Livingstone Centre in Summer 1967. Photographed on the lower slopes to the Clyde at the old Rose Garden (no longer there).
Pink and Red roses grow over the wooden trellis and offer a nice setting to take a walk, sit on a park bench, or enjoy the beauty of what the Centre has to offer.
The clock appears to be made of stone. Its unknown what eventually happened to it and sadly another Blantyre beauty spot removed. Thanks to Robert Stewart for sharing.
On social media, Alison Walker Hill told me, “I believe that we have the hexagonal units that made up the column of the clock…..dad would never see anything go to waste, no idea what happened to the stand and clock face sadly. Would be great to get them reunited…..although most of the blocks are now either broken or badly chipped“
Brian Weaver added, “Those are the roses that I pruned in 1969.“
