1934 Girl Cyclist Killed

bicycleOn Wednesday 8th August 1934, Mary Brodie Paterson, the 16-year-old daughter of Mr A. Paterson, of 73 Broompark Road, High Blantyre, was fatally injured when the cycle she was riding was involved in a collision with a motor cycle ridden by a young man.

I recall quite some time ago being told about this, and that the accident allegedly happened on Main Street near Auchinraith Road junction. However, that’s all the details I could find. If you know more about this tragic incident, please get in touch.
