Pictured here are the flat roofed homes in High Blantyre at Priestfield. Affectionately nicknamed, the Jerusalem homes, they were built in 1969 and 1970 although this particular photo was taken in 1993, before the installation of pitched roofs.
It only took a couple of decades to realise this type of roof wasn’t particularly suited to a wet , Scottish climate. The pitched roofs added better protection against the elements and allowed the properties to be further insulated.
