Highlighted in blue on this 1910 map, is a little window in High Blantyre, just off Main Street within Adams Sawmills. Strange subject perhaps for an article, but this has a nice story attached to it in future years.
By the 1960s, the sawmills had a different use. Fellow Blantyre history enthusiast Gordon Cook told me, “It marks the position of a second storey window in the sawmill, which overlooked the boy’s playground. In the early sixties the sawmill was used by a company to store soft drinks and frozen juice, called JUBBLY (see photo attached). We called it the ‘jubbly factory’. My big brother worked there, it was his
first job, and at playtime, I was made very popular as he threw down jubblys for me and my pals out of this window.”
