More wonderful paintings by HT Rankine. Old Blantyre scenes painted in ink and watercolour in 1990. Pictured is the Village and High Blantyre Main Street in the 1920s.
Mr Rankine has captured the detail in the streets and people going about the daily business very well. I have the pleasure of owning these nice paintings, gifted to me and framed from Mrs Lees earlier this year. They are scanned and added to this collection, for I don’t know if my house walls can accommodate any more old Blantyre paintings!

Trisha Mcginty I can remember the chip shop was at the Bus stop at the Cemetery Hall, it’s was a Tenement Building with the Spar shop at the corner & the chippy at the end & round the back was the stairs 4 the houses above the shops?
