1963 Brian Young at Prefabs

Brian Young has given us permission to share some photos he found of himself between 1963 and 1965. Messaging them over to us earlier today, they were taken at the prefabs at Clyde Crescent (behind St Joseph’s). Photos of prefabs are few and far between, so its really appreciated to see these ones. With so many people living in prefabs in Blantyre, i’m sure this will bring back some memories. The prefabs were just off Farm Road. Brian commented, “Was scared in case the baw went in wee Annie Boudris garden and she never gave it back.She was some wummin.”
