1972 The Lariat at Hillhouse

1972 Lariat Pub, Hillhouse

1972 Lariat Pub, Hillhouse

Now, I know this photo is not in Blantyre Parish (actually its about 100 yards over the boundary), but it is such a great photo, I thought I would share it here, after noticing it on the excellent Historic Hamilton page. Pictured is the Lariat pub in Hillhouse.

The date is 1972 and the Tartan Army are getting ready to travel to the football game with England.
