Sent in from Alistair Hastings whose grandfather took this photo in March 1963.
From a vantage point near the David Livingstone Centre turnstiles, is a view over to the old Wages building. This is from Blantyre looking over to the Bothwell side of the River Clyde.
To the right is the former David Livingstone Bridge. (the one before the current bridge). I’ve often heard of stories from people who used to drive over this old, rickety bridge. However, on the day this photo was taken….no vehicles (for it wasn’t a vehicle bridge!), but there are four children in the foreground about to cross over to Bothwell.
