Another great photo from James McGuire’s Collection. This time from around 1981 at Glasgow Road’s junction with Station Road.
I’m sure people will remember Stepek moving to the grocers at the corner of the building, which is now a barbers. Talking of which, pictured also is Jimmy Cleary’s barbers shop on the left at Station Road. Gallagher Grocers is pictured in this era. In the 1950s and 1960s it was formerly called McWilliams.
Vince’s would be a fond memory for many Blantyre people, facing out on to Glasgow Road, now Grahams, the chip shop. What’s your memories of this area?
