1920s Hunthill Road Homes

Hunthill Road pictured in the 1920s. These excellent photos show how quiet the roads were. Pictured in the mid to late 1920s, the photos are taken before the reconstruction of Hunthill Road and Bardykes Road in 1929. The vantage point of the photos is from the top of Watson Street, at a time more than a decade before the steel homes were built.

The weavers cottages are still there today, although of course no longer thatched. Thank you to Gordon Cook for sharing this in such good resolution with Blantyre Project.
